Summer Walking Tours explore UNM campus
Summer Walking Tours program, in its seventh year, will offer 10 campus expeditions
Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 6 through mid-August.
The free tours are open to the public and employees who want to learn more
about their work environment.
Dr. Gary Smith, manager of Grounds & Landscaping, will lead five arboretum
tours (June 6, 13; July 11, 25; Aug. 8) providing information on tree, turf
and pest management and grounds maintenance. The arboretum tours begin at the
Duck Pond and go north to University House, on to Zimmerman Library and Scholes
Hall and to the Maxwell Museum and UNM Chapel. Highlights include daylily and
cactus gardens, 70-year-old ponderosa pines, xeriscape examples, cottonwoods,
choke cherry and more.
Joe McKinney, university planner for the Department of Facility Planning, facilitates
three additional tours. On Aug. 1, he will conduct a UNM Historical Tour
featuring information about the evolution of campus buildings, pueblo-style
architecture and its on-campus influence.
McKinney also offers Museums, Galleries and Libraries tours July
18 and August 15. These tours provide a glimpse of some of UNMs unique
treasures. Highlights include the University Art Museum, Green House Conservatory,
Geology Museum, Meteoritics Museum and more.
