Walking Tour Map & Legend

Peru State College, the first college in Nebraska, is nestled in the Loess Hills of Eastern Nebraska along the route traveled by Lewis and Clark. The heavily wooded campus is comprised of 104 acres and is home to the “Campus of a Thousand Oaks Arboretum.” The impact of tree planting in early Nebraska is in breathtaking evidence on the campus. Tree canopies made from ancient specimens of Gingko, Colorado blue spruce, Maple, Cypress, Hickory and Elm create a remarkable display. As you tour campus, note that the trees have markers displaying their common and scientific names.
