The Evergreen'State College is the first public four-year college created in Washington in the 20th century. The first day of classes was on October 4, 1971 with 1178 students. The campus contains a large tract of undeveloped land along the Puget Sound waterfront, much of it being second growth evergreen forest, which is of use to the students and faculty of the campus as a research and natural area. The entire campus comprises about 1008 acres, much of it forested land. This total includes 27 acres of southern Puget Sound tidelands. In addition to the main campus, there is also an organic farm. We'll walk through the campus on sidewalks and maintained paths with some stairs. Pets need to be on a leash.
