A Tale of Two Seasons at the Taylor Arboretum

November 4, 2016

One road passing through a yellow wood (with apologies to Robert Frost)…

This photo was taken Nov. 2 in the Taylor Arboretum on a path resplendent in the yellows of the southern oak grove section.

You can view a slide show of photos taken Nov. 2 and May 31 to compare the dramatic seasonal changes in the plant life, as well as learn a little bit more about what Professor Steve Madigosky called “a beautiful piece of property with unlimited research potential.”

Widener assumed management of the arboretum in May. The 30-acre property is only a mile from Widener’s campus and offers a verdant, peaceful diversion. It is free to visit and open to visitors from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. You can read more about it in the new issue of Widener Magazine.
