The Arb (Cowling Arboretum)(website)
The Arboretum (known affectionately as "The Arb") consists of 880 acres of prairie and woodland purchased by Carleton president Donald J. Cowling back in the 1920s. Students enjoy its jogging, biking, and skiing trails and biology classes use it for field research.
