The Landscape and Arboretum Program at Bard College

The Landscape and Arboretum Program is charged with promoting plant conservation and preservation of the essential character of Bard’s 540-acre campus. The program formalizes the College’s dedication to caring for its unique landscape and opens the door to horticultural education, outreach, and research. Noncredit, continuing education courses—offered at the College through the New York Botanical Garden—are open to the public and to members of the Bard community. Other events sponsored by the program have included tree plantings, a falconry demonstration, and garden tours. Additionally, the Arboretum Program offers a summer internship to an undergraduate student.
