Constructed during the spring of 2002, the Lindsay Pryor walk commemorates the life and legacy of Professor Lindsay Dixon Pryor - one of the University's most noted botanists and an important figure in the establishment of Canberra's urban forest.
Lindsay Pryor was a man of trees. Consequently, the walk is a celebration of trees. In the space of several hundred meters the walk takes you past 22 interesting and noteworthy species of tree, while at the same time passing close to several of the University's most important biological and environment institutions. Each tree is identified with a small ceramic plaque set in the ground nearby, recording each species' scientific and common name, and brief details on the significance of each species.
This trail is a part of the ANU Walks series.
