EIU Again Earns 'Tree Campus USA' Honor

Apr-18-2012

Eastern Illinois University is one of 148 colleges and universities to achieve Tree Campus USA status for 2011.

The Tree Campus USA program, a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota, gives national recognition "for promoting healthy urban forest management and engaging the campus community in environmental stewardship."

To be eligible for the distinction, a school must have a campus tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan with dedicated annual expenditures, involvement in an Arbor Day observance, and a service-learning project aimed at engaging the student body in sustainable efforts.
