Campus Tree Tour

Eugene/Springfield–Whitey Lueck, an instructor in the UO Department of Landscape Architecture, annually leads a two-hour walk called Campus Tree Tour at the University of Oregon to discuss the campus’s landscape history and especially its trees, usually in the fall. He has given campus tours for many other groups, too, from the Society of American Foresters to garden clubs, school groups, and Boy Scout troops, and is available to lead private groups. The university’s lovely tree-studded and mostly car free campus lends itself perfectly to this type of educational outdoor activity. Lueck never gets tired of “showing off” the university campus’s ever-changing landscape. The special tour for OLLI members will take place in August. Participants will meet at the Pioneer Mother statue south of Johnson Hall, at 10 a.m. The tour is limited to the first 25 people to preregister.
