Eden Arboretum - Eastern Mennonite University
The university’s Eden Arboretum is located behind the Suter Science Center. The arboretum is a one-acre greenland where ecology, biology education, and international agriculture students put textbook learning into action.

The plantings of natives, perennials, ground covers, and ornamental grasses that offer alternatives to homeowners and landscapers to the use of turf and lawn chemicals.

The bridge that spans connects the arboretum with the Suter Science Center and greenhouse was built in honor of Emma Shetler Brubaker, a great supporter of the arboretum. The bridge was installed as a gift to the university in her memory and dedicated on Nov. 10, 1996, five years after her passing.
