Title: My Trip to Roemer Arboretum

I recently visited the Spencer J. Roemer Arboretum, and it was awesome! It’s this cool place in SUNY Geneseo where you can hang out in nature and see some neat stuff. The Arboretum has a big forest that used to be a pasture. Now, it’s full of trees and plants, and there’s a trail you can walk on. There are also gardens with lots of different flowers and shrubs. When my group and I arrived, it all started pretty normal. We all met in the parking lot right outside the trail and walked in together. We picked Wednesday because it was GREAT day and there was no class. I saw some old oak trees that are big and must be super old as I walked through the trail. Also, at the entrance, there are gardens with tons of different plants. Midway through the trail, there was a memorial for 9/11. I also noticed a big sign that showed what could be found down the trail such as plants for example. The sign showed a picture of a plant, with the name of the plant, as well as a little description of the plant. The gazebo was a nice spot to sit and think at the end of the trail. My group and I chose to stay near the gazebo because of the weather. It was a little windy and it was drizzling. The grass was wet and muddy, I was not a fan of that, but I had to deal with it. I was silly and brought white shoes to go on this adventure, a huge mistake. Griffin went on his own journey, and the rest of us enjoyed the natural greenery around us. They were not flowers or anything pretty like that, but it was plants that were green and beautiful in the way they looked, kind of hard to explain. We took a nice photo in the gazebo, one for the memory books. We didn’t stay too long as we ended our trip and began to walk out together. This trip helped us bond more and many stories were told about this place that I found interesting and entertaining. At this site, you can park for free in Lot J after 4 p.m. and on weekends during the school year. The arboretum is open from sunrise to sunset. The Arboretum is a nice place to relax and enjoy nature. I liked seeing all the plants and trees and learning a bit about the history of the area. It’s moments like these that remind us of the importance of connecting with nature and with each other. I would be happy to do something like this again with my group. Until our next adventure!
