Ceremonial Tree Planting

Event Details: 2:00 p.m., April 25

In February, Saint Louis University was again recognized as a 2013 Tree Campus by the National Arbor Day Foundation.

Launched in 2008, the national program honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation. SLU became the one of five institutions in Missouri, and only the second Jesuit institution to earn the distinction.

As we prepare the recertification process for 2014, Saint Louis University will hold an Arbor Day Observance on Friday April 25. There will be a ceremonial tree planting  at 2 p.m.

Flowering Dogwoods, which are the Missouri state tree, will be planted near the south side of DuBourg Hall.

There will be an information table on the mall beginning at 11 am with representatives of the Campus Tree Advisory Team available to answer any questions regarding the process. There will also be sign-up sheets if you are interested in participating in the re-certification process. Please take time to stop by and learn more about the Tree Campus USA designation.
