“I feel like I was doing something positive and helping to give back to our environment. Planting trees is such a good thing to do.”
DAL200 Tree Plant Volunteer
On June 9, 2018, led by urban forest researcher Peter Duinker and the DAL200Trees team, 200 trees were planted across the Studley and Sexton campuses to celebrate DAL’s 200th anniversary and the beginning of the University’s third century. Special thanks to Mike Wilkinson and his Environmental Services team for preparing the selected sites in advance of the tree plant. Students for generations to come will be able to take advantage of these “learning groves.” They are active learning environments where classes can learn to identify native species and observe associations between them.
