“Old Main – New Directions in Desert Gardens”

The University of Arizona’s beloved and iconic Old Main encapsulates the larger campus history of landscape evolution and innovation. Since the campus grounds have been used as a living laboratory, overtime plant selection, design preferences, and landscape management practices have evolved increasingly toward a model of sustainability for urban deserts. In celebration of the Campus Arboretum for the past 20 years, join with us to learn about old and new ideas as we envision the resilience possible in the next 20 years! Tours start at the University of Arizona Memorial Fountain, west of Old Main and last 60-90 minutes. Campus visitor parking is available and free on most weekends.
