Findlay Named Tree Campus Higher Ed. Institution
University of Findlay is proud to be recognized as a 2020 Tree Campus Higher Education institution by the Arbor Day Foundation for its commitment to effective urban forest management.
The Tree Campus Higher Education program honors colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals. Findlay achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus Higher Education’s five standards, which include maintaining a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance, and student service-learning project. Currently there are 403 campuses across the United States with this recognition.
“Tree Campuses and their students set examples for not only their student bodies but the surrounding communities showcasing how trees create a healthier environment,” said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Because of University of Findlay’s participation, air will be purer, water cleaner, and students and faculty will be surrounded by the shade and beauty trees provide.”
University of Findlay’s Arbor Day celebration is slated for mid-April. Campus Tree Advisory Board and the Green Campus Club will co-host the events. Additional event information will be provided soon.
