On August 26, 2010, the Department of Operations and Supply Chain Management held their faculty retreat at The Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, Ohio, as they get set for the Fall 2010 semester at Cleveland State University. A few more photos of the trip are included at the bottom of this article.
If you have never been to Holden, here is a brief overview of what they feature:
"At Holden, cultivated gardens come alive with color in the spring; cool forest trails offer a respite from the summer heat; woodlands are set ablaze with rich hues of fall; and paths lead you deep into the beauty of the winter woods. Named as an Important Bird Area by the Audubon Society, with more than 20 miles of hiking trails, Holden is a haven for bird watchers as well hikers, gardeners and nature enthusiasts.
Covering 3,600 acres, The Holden Arboretum is among the largest arboreta in the United States. Documenting more than 120,000 plants, Holden's horticultural focus is on a recognized collection of trees and shrubs, which are displayed in gardens accompanied by groundcovers and perennials, and in themed collections. Holden connects people with nature for inspiration and enjoyment, fosters learning and promotes conservation."
