Coker Arboretum Cool-Off
If you’re cruising through Raleigh-Durham, beat the highway heat by stopping for a stroll through Coker Arboretum on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. William Chambers Coker, the university’s first professor of botany, established this academic Eden in 1903. He loved East Asian species and added many throughout the 1920s and 1940s.
Here are a few bright spots that entice.
