The Rotunda Steps
The Rotunda, University Avenue, Charlottesville, VA, USA
Are you terrified of the bold UVA squirrels that roam grounds, unchecked and unchallenged in their search to dominate UVA trash cans and potentially take over the school? Do you sometimes wish that homo sapiens evolved with tails so that you could dangle from tree limbs at will? Do you have a weird urge to hug every cool tree that you see?
Let’s show those squirrels who OWNS THIS SCHOOL and vibe with some cool trees by CLIMBING THEM and TAKING OVER THE SQUIRREL HEADQUARTERS (jk we will climb respectful of wildlife)!!! Join me in a QUEST to bum around/find the BEST climbable tree on grounds. We will meet on the rotunda steps at 7, climb a few practice trees that I scoped out this summer near the lawn, and then quest to find new ones, potentially watching the sun set from the leafy realm as we go. The only requirements for this trip are that you have confidence that you won’t a) have a panic attack in a tree and b) wear a mask (and c) maybe bring a beverage to stay hydrated). Also, clothing that is ~inconspicuous~ so that we can spy on people from above (jk) (unless). This is also a great trip if you are new to UVA and just want to get to know grounds//the gardens around the lawn! OR JUST BUM AROUND IN SOME TREES! WOOHOO!
