Learn about the Willow Pond project, an ecological restoration project underway at the Arboretum. Willow Pond will have a constructed (man-made) wetland with a planned outdoor classroom. Learn about the macro- and micro-ecological landscape of Willow Pond, the rare salamanders and other species that inhabit the site, and how site design will restore habitat for this species.  Explore innovative stormwater design and how creation of wetlands in the site will restore and enhance the habitat for all kinds of flora and fauna and create an engaging space for visitors too.
