The W. Gordon Belser Harboretum featured in the State

The W. Gordon Belser Arboretum is a nature preserve located within Columbia and part of the Department of Biological Sciences. Unlike much of the flat, pine-covered Midlands of South Carolina, the 10-acre W. Gordon Belser Arboretum is a collection of plant communities consisting of ten different biomes (habitats), a waterfall and a Botanical Garden as well as many unique Exhibits. It was just featured in the State Today as a hidden gem in Columbia. Go visit it and enjoy!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
