Cofrin Memorial Arboretum

The John P. and Austin Cofrin Memorial Arboretum, a 260-acre greenbelt that encompasses the campus and serves as the boundary between campus and community for most of the perimeter, was formally designated in 1975 and has continued to grow.

Some of the land within the Cofrin Arboretum was purchased with funds from the Land and Water Conservation program (LAWCON). Other land was gifted by The Nature Conservancy or other restricted donations. Numerous utility easements, both public and private, are also located within the Cofrin Arboretum. These restrictions are discussed on page 45 of this Master Plan document.

The Cofrin Memorial Arboretum Land and Resource Management Plan, drafted by the Cofrin Center for Biodiversity, is in the initial stages of planning and development.
