Coronavirus Update as of March 17

Connecticut College has made the decision to conduct college courses remotely and only allow access to the campus for essential personnel. In light of these precautions, the gated parts of the Arboretum will be closed to the public and all Arboretum programs will be postponed through April 30. (New dates for programs will be announced at a later time.)  Gated parts of the Arboretum include the Native Plant Collection, the Caroline Black Garden and the Campus Landscape. Ungated areas of the Arboretum will remain open every day from dawn to dusk. Please follow guidelines from the CDC if you plan to visit. We will continue to work with the College to assess the situation and post updates as available.
