As a partner in the educational mission of Harvard University, the Arnold Arboretum leverages its landscape, collections, and learning resources to support undergraduate education. Arboretum-based faculty and researchers, state-of-the-art laboratories, and the living collections provide field experiences for diverse Harvard classes ranging from the biology of plants and urban ecology to landscape design and even archeology. A summer short course connects students with global experts in plant morphology, while a 10-week internship program mentors students in conducting botanical and environmental research. Science lectures at Weld Hill offer weekly learning and networking opportunities for students, and reach those on campus and around the world by live stream.
