Starhill Forest is the official arboretum of Illinois College-- a scientific collection of trees, specializing in oaks, but also featuring a wide variety of other plantings, as well as classroom space, a wide variety of programs and tours, trails, and more!
In October 2008, Guy and Edie Sternberg formalized their partnership with Illinois College, creating the College’s official arboretum. The German to English translation of Sternberg is Starhill.
Starhill Forest is located five miles southeast of Lincoln's New Salem in southern Menard County, Ill., 45 minutes east of campus. Guy and Edie offer lectures about oaks, historic trees, native trees and other tree-related topics, tailored for any audience level.
