Created and named in honor of Drew botany faculty members Robert and Florence Zuck, the Zuck Arboretum was establishe by the Drew board of trustees in 1980.
Situated along the Loantaka Way side of campus, behind the Copper Beech complex, the Arboretum incorporates two glacial ponds, a mix of native and introduced trees, and a variety of flowering plants and shrubs. The ponds are home to turtles, goldfish, catfish and muskrats and are stops for migrating Canada geese, ducks and herons. Its rare and irreplaceable resources serve as an outdoor laboratory to enhance students education. The Department of Biology has routinely run fragile experiments there. Open for passive recreation, it also serves as a wonderful woodland retreat for anyone
