Living in the middle of a city can really wear on a person. Sometimes you need to get out into nature and interact with some wildlife to remember how beautiful our planet is. Of course, even a day in the woods can be enhanced by your smartphone and a really good “Nature” App. Join Matthew Herron, BREC, for this informative talk on several Apps that will enable you to interact with other animal lovers, find spots where people are seeing a lot of wildlife, and help identify flora and fauna.

Welcome to LSU Hilltop Arboretum! These fourteen extraordinarily beautiful acres in Baton Rouge showcase an extensive collection of Louisiana native trees and shrubs. The property known as Hilltop is located on Highland Road south of LSU.
You are invited to cross the old footbridge overlooking a twenty foot deep ravine and wander into the tranquil “cathedral”, where tree canopies form a green protective room. Discover the bamboo grove where you can sit and listen to the wind in the trees. In the meadow, tall grasses and colorful autumn wildflowers shimmer in the bright Louisiana sunlight. The visitor to LSU Hilltop Arboretum will find not only a place of learning, but a quiet place, far removed from the pressures of life; a place of solace and contemplation.
