Fauna of the Carleton Arboretum

The Arboretum is home to a diverse assemblage of animals. A project is currently underway to document the diversity of fauna found throughout the many habitats of the Arb and McKnight prairie. Lists of known species of several taxa have been made and can be found by visiting the links listed below. In the future, students and faculty will continue this project until a thorough study of Arb diversity has been completed.
