Document Seasonal Highlights


One of the many ways you can help the Purdue Arboretum is by submitting seasonal highlights that you have observed while on campus. As an Arboretum and a major research institution, we’re interested in recording phenological data (when a plant flowers, fruits, or changes color based on seasonal changes). However, with over 40,000 plants and 2,000+ acres, our staff can’t possibly observe each and every change as it happens. Even if you only submit one observation, you are helping us document the many changes that happen to our campus landscape everyday.

If observe a tree or shrub flowering, fruiting, or displaying fall color, please submit the form below so that we can record the event in our Purdue Arboretum Explorer database.
