West Virginia University
students and alumni from the
School of Design and Community Development will combine talents to design a
visionary plan for the
WVU Core Arboretum, a 91-acre natural area located between Monongahela Boulevard
and the Monongahela River.
During the WVU
program annual design charrette, a team of designers will work quickly to
address problems identified through their own analysis and by various stakeholders,
and develop designs for key elements of a proposed Core Arboretum master plan.
The outdoor facility, managed by the
Department of Biology, includes three miles of foot trails and is used for
education, research and recreation.
