FAU NAMED A ‘TREE CAMPUS USA’ UNIVERSITY
BY ARBOR DAY FOUNDATION
JUPITER, FL (April 18, 2011) – Florida Atlantic University, and more specifically its Jupiter campus, recently earned Tree Campus USA recognition for 2010 for its dedication to campus forestry management and environmental stewardship. This is the first year FAU has been named a Tree Campus USA.
Tree Campus USA is a national program that honors colleges, universities and their leaders for promoting healthy management of their campus forests and for engaging the community in environmental stewardship. Tree Campus USA is a program of the Arbor Day Foundation and is supported by a grant from Toyota.
“By encouraging its students to plant trees and participate in service that will help the environment, Florida Atlantic University is making a positive impact on its community that will last for decades,” said John Rosenow, chief executive and founder of the Arbor Day Foundation. “One goal of the Tree Campus USA program is to help create healthier communities for its citizens through the planting of trees, and the city of Fort Lauderdale will certainly benefit from Florida Atlantic University’s commitment to Tree Campus USA."
