Adkins Field Guides
The Adkins Arboretum Field Guide series serves as an introduction to some of the 600-plus species of native shrubs, trees, wildflowers, grasses, and ferns that can be found on our grounds. Whether you are able to visit us in person or only through the guides, we hope you will find these videos and support materials with activities as a helpful starting point in exploring the natural world around you—or as an aid in introducing a young naturalist to the wonders of the wild. We’ve purposefully included only select points of identification and a few examples of ecological benefits and cultural significance for each species—the rest is up to you.
