Tree Planting Initiative

Students and staff planted trees donated by the Arbor Day Foundation and Toyota. The planting was in celebration of the University’s commitment to tree care and conservation and its quest for Tree Campus USA recognition.

The volunteer activity was one in a series of hands-on tree planting events sponsored by the AAMU Foundation, Toyota, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., in support of a campaign to recruit and train environmental leaders. Companion events included tree plantings at the University of Florida and Rutgers University.

More than 30 trees were planted at Legacy Lake.
