Long Description:
Stretch your legs and your mind — take an entertaining guided walking tour of the stunning L&C campus in Godfrey.

Learn about the history of Lewis and Clark and the former Monticello Women's Seminary. Discover how Lewis and Clark is working to preserve the the beauty of the original limestone buildings and copper patina accents. Explore the lily pond, fountains, and gardens designed to inspire students and be environmentally friendly. Listen to the stories behind the monumental bronze sculptures by world-renowned artist Richard Hunt in Crossroads Plaza, Ruth Duckworth's Survivor, Missouri Botanical Garden's Signature Gardens, Fountain Court, River of Colors Garden, Sacagawea by Glenna Goodacre, and many more fascinating features of the 215-acre Godfrey Campus.

The Monticello Sculpture Gardens have been designated by Missouri Botanical Garden as one of their Signature Gardens in Illinois. Here, the traditional edges between art and landscape blend to create a seamless partnership between sculptor and landscape architect. Sometimes, gardens draw inspiration from the sculpture and sculptor; in other instances, the sculpture is chosen and placed to strengthen existing gardens, complete vistas or create drama in the landscape.

In all cases, the gardens feature seasonal interest and fragrance, complexity of foliage texture and color, horticultural excellence, and satisfaction of all the senses.
