SHSU Botanical Research- CHSS Building and Garden with Water Wall (SELF-GUIDED TOUR #9 & #10)


CHSS BUILDING (Back of Building)

This next garden area is a little more hidden.  The Water Wall and gardens are located on the backside of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) building. 

According to Scott Dolezal, Grounds Manager, the Water Wall and garden was the vision of retired Dean DeCastro and
artist, Jesus Moroles.   Funding came from the unused building art budget and donations generated from these engraved granite bricks.

Also, located in this area is the Earth Day tree. 

This tree was planted, by the Staff Counsel, about a year or more before the Water Wall was under constructed. The tree is a Tulip Popular and the only one of that species presently on the campus.

Very unusual blooms


One last stop on the SELF-GUIDED TOUR map.  Head up the hill to #11 and #12.
Until Next Time.
