Each year Purdue celebrates its esteem of being named Tree Campus USA with a volunteer tree planting on Arbor Day. This Arbor Day 15 volunteers planted 7 trees outside of Purdue's Krannert School of Management Building as the initial part of the Krannert Patio Renovations this summer.
At the event, Purdue was named Tree Campus USA for the sixth year in a row. Tree Campus USA is a national program that was created in 2008 to honor colleges and universities for effective campus forest management and for engaging staff and students in conservation goals. More information about the program is available at www.arborday.org/treecampususa.
