Tree tour
Those of us who live, study, and work here, are fortunate to have the gift of this campus’ natural beauty around us everyday and have the opportunity to share it with others. As with all gifts, it is so easy to take these magnificent surroundings for granted. The goal of this Main Quad tree tour is to better engage the Notre Dame community with our natural surroundings. The Notre Dame campus did not just spring full-blown into its beauty. Rather, the many plantings on campus -- their types and placements -- represent the deliberate efforts of a succession of women and men from the beginning of Notre Dame till today. This app aims to better educate the community on both the natural history and the campus history of these unique trees! Enjoy a peaceful walk around campus’ Main Quad.
