Dawn Redwoods: One of the Dawn redwoods located by the west entrance to McCone Hall may date back to the seedlings and seeds brought back from China in 1948 by Palentology Professor Ralph Chaney. The Dawn Redwood had been known only as a fossil until 1941.
Eucalyptus Grove: Located in the original southwest corner of the campus, on the north side of Strawberry Creek, the grove was planted as a wind break for the first campus athletic facility, "Cinder Track". It was located approx. where the Valley Life Sciences buildings now stands. The grove is thought to be the tallest stand of hardwoods in North America and was planted from seed taken from Australia in 1877. Adjacent to the grove is Douglas Tilden's statue, "The Football Players."
