Trees of the UC Berkeley campus walk

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday November 14

10:00 AM  –  12:00 PM

This tour will seek out the best of Berkeley’s fall colors as we use visiting the most notable campus trees as a framework for our walk. As we enjoy the diversity of species, you may learn a bit of history about the development of the campus and a few stories about the people and circumstances behind the plantings, the named groves, landmarks and memorial trees. It seems like every tree has a story. We might even talk about a building or two.

The walk will be a long loop starting at the Springer Gateway at 10 AM. Springer Gateway is the small plaza west of the entrance kiosk at the top of the Crescent Drive. (West entrance to campus) Bring your walking shoes and watch the weather report.

The walk will be led by JIM HORNER - B.A. Landscape Architecture ‘71, UC Berkeley. 

As Campus Landscape Architect, Horner provided leadership in site planning, design and landscape construction at UC Berkeley for 18 years; now retired. He co-authored the Landscape Master Plan in 2004, helped prepare the Landscape Heritage Plan in 2005 and co-authored the “Trees of the Berkeley Campus” in 2016.
