Kalamazoo College’s Lillian Anderson Arboretum comprises 140 acres of marsh, meadow, pine plantation and second-growth deciduous forest in Oshtemo Township. Not only is it a site for active research and ecological monitoring, it’s a grand place for a Sunday stroll. Join Binney Girdler, Associate Professor of Biology and Director of the Lillian Anderson Arboretum, for a tour of this naturally beautiful location, and learn about our new off-the-grid education pavilion named after Dr. H. Lewis Batts, Jr. ’43 and Jean M. Batts ’43. We will meet at the main Arboretum parking lot but space to park is limited. Overflow parking will be available at the Oshtemo Township Park (7275 W. Main Street), just east of our property. If possible, please bring a water bottle.
