Your favorite place for rest and relaxation, the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum at James Madison University, is featured by USA TODAY Travel, their online magazine.

We believe EJC Arboretum Friends will be joining us in congratulating James Madison University for the far-reaching public acknowledgment and exposure given via USA TODAY TRAVEL, Experience South section, that is given to the only public university on-campus arboretum in Virginia. The EJC Arboretum is being featured along with Appomattox National Historical Park, The Homestead, and Colonial Williamsburg, Arlington National Cemetery, Great Falls National Park, and many other of Virginia's finest public offerings. We can all be so proud, and so grateful for James Madison University's Edith J. Carrier Arboretum. Be sure to visit often to take a walk, take in the year round wonderland scenery, and enjoy a rich variety of events and programs. Go to jmu.edu/arboretum for more information. And be sure to visit USA TODAY Travel and check it out.

Thanks to Arboretum friend Frank Doherty for his beautiful photo, shown left, that was used in the USA Today Travel gallery.
