The Story


The arboretum is the campus and the campus is the arboretum. American University's entire campus is designated as an arboretum, therefore everything on the premise is a part of this exquisite preservation of nature amidst the built environment. This short documentary tells the year-long story of the arboretum & gardens from the perspective of the trees, flowers and plants that call campus home.
