Guided Arbor Tour of Danforth Campus offered March 21

Kent Theiling Jr., grounds and landscape design manager for the Danforth Campus, will lead a Spring Arbor Tour Wednesday, March 21.

The guided tour will start at 11 a.m. at the Beaumont Pavilion in Brookings Quadrangle and is expected to last approximately an hour.

The tour will take participants on a walk throughout the Danforth Campus to learn more about the different kind of trees located on campus. This tour will focus on the area east of Brookings Hall.

The tour is organized by Kim Shilling, assistant director of student services in the School of Engineering & Applied Science.

“It is wonderful to be able to tap the extensive knowledge of Kent Theiling,” Shilling says, “and he is kind to discuss not only the types of trees that are planted but also the strategic plans and sustainability issues of the Washington University landscape.”

In case of rain, the tour will take place at 11 a.m. Monday, March 26, in the same location.
