“Mrs. Pat Giordano took the initiative to make this outreach project a reality for the Auburn community, encouraging us to take advantage of the Lee County Master Gardener’s educational grant.  From this signage, visitors will be able to learn more about our native oaks and enjoy them along this trail,” explained the Donald E. Davis Arboretum Director Morgan Beadles.

This grant, along with funding provided through donations to the Friends of the Arboretum program helped to make the Alabama Native Red Oaks and Alabama Native White Oaks signage created by artist Preston Montague a reality.

“Visitors to the Davis Arboretum can see scientific renderings to distinguish each type of oak in these outdoor displays in addition to seeing oaks along the trail,” Beadles added.

The new Oak Alley trail is located just off of Lem Morrison Drive inside the arboretum between the Carnivorous Plant Bog and the Sand Dune displays.
