Arbor Day celebration
April 30, 2010
Arbor Day was celebrated this morning on The University of Iowa Pentacrest. Facilities Management Landscape Services and several others gathered to install a bur oak in honor of Larry Wilson, retired campus planner. The event also offered the opportunity to recognize the University's designation as the first campus in Iowa to be be designated a Tree Campus USA site.
This event, as well as a student service learning project earlier this month involving planting 500 seedlings and garlic mustard removal near the Boyd Law Building, helped fulfill the University's Tree Campus USA requirements.
