Pō é tree: On Sacred Ground

As an internationally renowned poetry library, the University of Arizona Poetry Center sponsors numerous University and community programs, with a special opportunity within the College of Humanities,  to provide free and full accessibility to the public. In light of our shared commitment as non-profit organizations to extend our resources to the public, the Campus Arboretum has partnered with the Poetry Center to offer free poetry readings on campus. The tree where we will gather has been designated as a "Po-eh-TREE". Our goal is to harness the power of poetic language to expand appreciation for urban trees and to provide experiences for campus residents and visitors that transform their attitudes and ability to advocate for urban tree stewardship and conservation. Gather under a special university tree, and enjoy poetry and discussion with a poetry center docent. 

 
 
 
 
The theme for poems shared this Saturday will be: "On Sacred Gournd": A celebration of Native American Voices.

Docents will guide participants and discussion. No previous experience with poetry is necessary to enjoy this event. Participants should meet under the trees in front of Herring Hall. (parking directionscampus map
