Including the campus itself, the Arboretum encompasses approximately 750 acres of preserved open space in southeastern Connecticut. Once a farm surrounded by woodlands, the Arboretum offers visitors a chance to explore a diverse collection of natives and botanicals, to view a performance by Flock Theater, or to just simply wander and enjoy the beauty of this precious natural resource.
