 Mission

Our mission is to understand the contributions of plants, particularly trees, to urban landscape ecology and other earth science-related issues and to educate the public concerning the nature of our cultivated and native plant life in Northwest Ohio. Urban Landscape Ecology is the study of human interaction with the environment.

Description

The University of Toledo's Stranahan Arboretum is a 47-acre site, about a 10 minute drive from the main campus, that consists of cultivated ornamental trees, rolling lawns, natural woods, ponds, wetlands and prairie. It serves as one of the Department of Environmental Science's field sites for environmental education and research. Both graduate and undergraduate courses in ecology and geology use the Arboretum as an outdoor laboratory. It also hosts a number of educational programs for area school students (K-12) throughout the year.
