The Arboretum at Penn State serves as a site for scientific and scholarly projects connected with a variety of University-based programs. These have included projects by faculty in Biology, Entomology, Ecosystem Science and Management, Plant Science, Plant Pathology, Education, Landscape Architecture, Visual Arts, Theatre, and others. We facilitate these projects whenever possible. If you are interested in using the Arboretum as a location for research or scholarship, please contact Director Kim Steiner for more information.
