National Arbor Day Foundation – Tree Campus Higher Education Program CA

  Grant Amount: Not Specified

Information

The National Arbor Day Foundation is accepting applications to the Tree Campus Higher Education program.
This program provides a simple framework for colleges and universities to grow their community forests, achieve national recognition, and create a campus their students and staff are proud of.
Benefits to Becoming Part of This Program
  • A commitment to trees can significantly reduce the amount of energy your campus, and community, needs to generate.
  • Planting and maintaining trees absorbs carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, mitigating the effects of climate change.
  • Green space provides important mental health benefits to students, faculty, and staff, as well as encourages physical activity.
  • Involving students in tree-related service-learning projects helps educate the next generation about the importance of caring for the environment.

Eligibility

Colleges or universities can receive annual Tree Campus Higher Education recognition by meeting five overarching standards. They include:

Establishment of a campus tree advisory committee
Evidence of a campus tree care plan
Verification of the plan’s dedicated annual expenditures
Observing Arbor Day
Creating a service-learning project aimed at engaging the student body

Each of these standards is described more fully in the guidelines.
