Historic Council Oak Tree

Learn the history of this historic tree on the UW-Eau Claire campus. Early on it was a meeting place for Native Americans in the area, and more recently it became a meeting place for students and the symbol of the campus. Although the tree no longer stands, today's students can sit on a bench made by the Art Department from the wood of the Council Oak tree. The bench is in McIntyre Library and overlooks the place where the tree once stood.

Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
