The Peavy Arboretum is a historical treasure of the region, preserving Kalapuya culture for generations to come. The land reveals its presence through lithic scatters and regular burning, which has diversified our forest’s species composition in some areas while creating other habitats necessary for evolving life on Earth. The Site provides insight into how Native Americans living here thousands upon thousands of years ago crafted stones with great precision before leaving no trace; it also highlights ongoing research at this venue by academics who seek answers about whether fires were intentionally set or merely accidents they happened during times.Situated at NW Peavy Arboretum Rd, Corvallis, Oregon 97330, the Peavy Arboretum is an iconic living laboratory for the students of Oregon State University whose forestry research has been recognized internationally. Visitors can enjoy picnicking by one of the pristine ponds or take advantage of all types of trails that wind through this forested mountain.
The Peavy Arboretum is a place for outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy their surroundings. Visitors can picnic by the pond or take long hikes up in the mountains while learning how these areas were used before they became part of our modern world. The land here has seen many different types of people come through – Native Americans who lived off what was available locally; government workers like foresters and conservationists working on projects that would preserve nature’s beauty both inside cities as well outside them when it got too crowded (think: urban renewal); students doing research projects at either side-by.
The Arboretum is a place for outdoor enthusiasts to get lost in nature and enjoy the fresh air. It has extensive trails, walking paths open to the public, an arena where you can play sports under blue skies or feel raindrops on your face while fishing by one of many lakes within these lands donated from George Brown Logging Company.
Arboretum Trails: The Peavy Arboretum provides a number of short, wide, and generally flat walking paths that weave through trees native to the Pacific Northwest and those from other parts around the world. One can find giant sequoias along Redcedar Run Trail. One might also enjoy observing their towering western red cedars while sitting quietly in contemplation or strolling past camas fields that bloom purple during April and Maytime. There are many posts around the Arboretum that provide information about its trees and history. You can learn more while having fun by taking this self-guided tour brochure from our library.
