We are grateful for the generosity and good timing of Professor Martha Hawes' donations to the Campus Arboretum. Funds were contributed in honor of her husband and Campus Arboretum friend, Professor Hans Van Etten, to sponsor a tree and bench in his name and to provide funds for 6 undergraduate interns for a full year. You can learn more about Hans, the wonderful man who inspired Martha's generosity, here.
