About Miami University Dogwood Grove
Nestled across from the Miami University Inn, in the farthest corner of North Quad, Dogwood Grove waits patiently for anyone who wishes to take a break from our cement and red brick world, to reawaken themselves in the tranquility of nature.
The chorus of pond, fountain, and birds provide a soothing melody to those who are studying or taking a break from a long day’s work. Yet, the grove is so much more than just a contrast between our hectic lives and the calm beauty of nature. It is also a conglomeration of rarities.
Standing strong and tall, three Scarlet oak trees, uncommon to this area, dominate the center of Dogwood Grove, while smaller dogwood trees dot the periphery. In the early morning of spring, summer and early fall, blue heron can be seen fishing for a meal in the goldfish-filled pond. Kingfishers too have been spotted making a meal of the pond’s inhabitants. Snapping turtles, harmless snakes, and frogs are not uncommon visitors to the edge of the pond and nearby pools.
