NEWS & EVENTS
Don’t we all want a room with a view? For so long a home and the garden outside of it were designed as independent spaces. But with renewed interest in the outdoors, our homes and garden spaces today are more connected. Our Spring Garden Tour will show you how this is done.
Featuring Jane Paterson with the Baton Rouge Audubon Society. Louisiana is a year-long bird-watching destination. Please join us for this program that will promote an interest and appreciation of the value of birds, both aesthetic and economic, which will ensure wiser conservation or our bird life.
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.
