Into the Arb takes place in early September as part of the New Student Week schedule for incoming students at Carleton. About 500 new students, their New Student Week leaders, the CCCE staff, and Cowling Arboretum staff and volunteers spend the day together planting trees, learning about Carleton’s fantastic arboretum, and getting to know one another.

Into the Arb 2019

In previous years, students have worked together to remove buckthorn, an invasive species in Minnesota. This event is a collaboration between the Cowling Arboretum and the CCCE.
