Goats in the Glen! A Project of Campus Life

Maintaining a Spot for Self-Discovery and Scientific Exploration

Towson students have loved the Glen Arboretum for more than 80 years. Since the 1930s, they've gone there, in the heart of campus, to learn and unwind. Its pathways curve through 12 acres of natural beauty—plants, trees and shrubs principally native to Maryland. Once home to the Glen Players and a vibrant social scene, the Glen now gives students, faculty and staff opportunities to build teamwork on the Challenge Course, conduct research in biology and chemistry, and just take a few minutes to relax. Plus, it welcomes visitors who want to know more about Maryland's ecology.

How Can You Help?

This fall, Towson University has set a goal of $2,000 to aid in the return of goats to the Glen! Goats eat invasive species in the Glen, like English Ivy, and help clear the way for the Glen to remain a Towson treasure. So many campuses are simply concrete, brick and steel, but your gift this year helps to keep the Glen green and growing, ensuring the Glen is accessible to everyone.

    The Glen will always be a special place for me. I saw the beginning of the goat program as a student worker in the Glen. Glad to help it continue!
