In recognition of both Earth Day and Arbor Day — a national holiday where individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees — UC San Diego volunteers will plant trees at various campus locations. Volunteers should gather at the Eleanor Roosevelt College, Housing West at 11 a.m. for light refreshments. The tree planting will be sponsored by West Coast Arborists, who will kick off the event with an educational program and ceremonial tree planting. Volunteers and UC San Diego landscape technicians will disperse to the Marshall Community Garden, Muir College, Birch Aquarium and Mesa Graduate Housing to plant additional trees.
Light refreshments, t-shirts and gloves will be provided.
