Welcome to Oregon State University Campus Arboretum

“The Willamette Valley is incredible…

environmental conditions have allowed our campus to turn into a horticultural mecca.”

– Dan Blanchard, Curator of Living Plant Collections for OSU Campus Arboretum & Horticulture Instructor

Oregon State University’s Campus Arboretum serves as a living learning laboratory for the university and surrounding community to support the University’s Land Grant Mission of teaching, research, and outreach and engagement. The use of interpretive plant signage and an interactive web map is working to increase access and spread awareness of the plants that make up the unique woody plant living collection across core campus. We strive to become leaders in plant evaluation, conservation, plant introductions, public horticulture, and biodiversity education. We welcome you all to visit the OSU Campus Arboretum to gain knowledge of our campus woody plant living collection.
