The Cultivating Champions exhibit, on display for the month of February, highlights the champion tress that are a part of the arboretum on Regis’ Northwest Denver campus.

“The exhibit is not the history of the Arboretum but a presentation of what a tree does and what humans can do to preserve an environment that is enhanced by their presence,” said Elizabeth Cook, University archivist. “I really think that people will leave with a greater appreciation of our trees and an enriched knowledge of arboretums in general.”
