    Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania

    Where
    100 E. Northwestern Avenue Philadelphia PA 19118

    The Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania began in 1887 as ''Compton,'' the summer home of John and Lydia Morris, brother and sister. John and Lydia Morris laid plans for a school and laboratory at Compton devoted to horticulture and botany. Through the stewardship and vision of the Quaker family, Compton became the Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania in 1932. Listed on The National Register of Historic Places, it is an interdisciplinary resource center for the University, and is recognized as the official arboretum of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Science, art, and humanities are pursued through a variety of research, teaching, and outreach programs that link the Arboretum to a worldwide effort to nurture the earth's forests, fields and landscapes.
