A glimpse at the smaller creatures who share Colgate's outdoor place
for quiet contemplation, the Class of 2002 Garden at Merrill House
The Class of 2002 was inspired to create the garden that graces the grounds of
Merrill House as a place of reflection in the aftermath of the terrorist
attacks on September 11, 2001. The garden, which is home to more than 35 types
of flowering plants, has become host to a multitude of tiny inhabitants.
