Auburn University's Facilities Management, the Davis Arboretum and members of the Tree Care Advisory Committee invite the Auburn Family to join them for a "Tree Walk" around campus during their lunch hour the week of Oct. 17– 20.

This event encourages those who join to focus their attention towards the beauty of the campus’s canopy. As one of the founding campuses to participate in the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree Campus Higher Education program during its inception in 2008, Auburn maintains its commitment to trees and the benefits they provide as they welcome you along on this event.
