A Growing and Vibrant Campus Landscape
With about 600 acres and 5,000 trees, the University of Idaho’s Moscow campus offers a living classroom for students — from landscape architects to fire scientists and beyond. Keeping those trees healthy and supporting the education of future students takes careful stewardship and planning. And more than 100 years later, those efforts are still being driven by a blueprint set down for the university by John Charles Olmsted. Read the stories below to learn more about the role U of I’s landscape plays in supporting our students, employees and the entire Vandal family.
