VOLUNTEERS NEEDED – ARBOR DAY / TREE CAMPUS USA PRESENTATION
Thursday, April 24 / 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. / Knoy Hall (facing Grant St.)
On April 24, 2014 Purdue’s Office of Sustainability is organizing an Arbor Day celebration (Arbor Day is on April 15 this year).  They are coordinating planting of trees on the east side of Knoy Hall.  Sarah Vaughn is looking for volunteers to assist with the tree planning.  If you would like to participate, please contact her at 765-494-2481 or svaughn@purdue.edu.  Below is the schedule for the day:
·         10:00am Presentation of Tree Campus USA status by DNR / State Rep / Tim Detzner
·         10:15am OUS Representative will speak re: importance of the living lab, Purdue Arboretum, campus culture, Arbor Day, etc…
·         10:30am Volunteers get safety gear, sign waiver, and break into groups w/ staff to see pre-dugs be planted and staked, and then they work together to plant and stake 1 of the 5 that have not been pre-dug (or vice-versa, I think it is best for Jeff to decide on the order in which the trees are planted).
·         11:45am Lunch is served, students can drop off their safety gear and shovel and grab a lunch and go on their way.
