The Arboretum, University of Guelph, encompasses 400 acres of plant collections, gardens, walking trails, natural woodlands, wetlands, and meadows. Adjacent to the university's main campus, The Arboretum is free to the public and open dawn until dusk. According the Arboretum website they are open for walkthrough access only.

Established in 1970, The Arboretum is home to more than 2,000 different taxa of woody plants, organized into collections that include a synoptic World of Trees collection, as well as a Native Trees of Ontario collection, and noteworthy collections of Oaks and Beeches, Maples, and Conifers.

In the coming weeks, Village Media will be running a series of videos meant to enlighten and/or entertain you while we all go through this period of COVID-19 isolation. We hope you enjoy!
