Construct a New Amphitheater for the Davis Arboretum
As the Donald E. Davis Arboretum continues improvements, helps us fund the construction of an outdoor instructional and educational amphitheater space near the pond.
The amphitheater would allow student groups of all ages to learn and study in a natural setting. The amphitheater will seat approximately 40 students and be utilized by local schools, Auburn University classes, and community groups and organizations. The amphitheater will foster collaboration and discussion, as well as hands-on learning experiences.
Portions of the amphitheater would be constructed using composite, environmentally friendly materials. The project will be a collaboration with the McWhorter School of Building Science to complete construction. The amphitheater project will be complemented by a larger pier renovation project that is dedicated to making Auburn’s Arboretum an engaging place for everyone in our community.
The Davis Arboretum, housed under the College of Sciences and Mathematics at Auburn University, is a 13.5-acre public garden. It provides visitors with a place to enjoy a natural setting while experiencing the native plants and habitats of Alabama.
