April 5th is Arbor Day 2019 in Kentucky! Come help us restore Louisville's shrinking tree canopy. Join us for a celebration of UofL’s on-going commitment to trees and our status as a Tree Campus USA  (for 9 years running!).

This year we will have two celebrations, including our first at the downtown Health Sciences Center (HSC):
Friday, April 5th, 11am-2pm, Belknap Campus University Pointe
Monday, April 8th, 9am at HSC School of Dentistry

  • Help us plant new trees on campus! (On April 5th, we'll start the tree planting around noon on Greek Row.)
  • Take home a free native tree sapling to plant in your yard or neighborhood! We'll be giving away 100 native roughleaf dogwoods, 100 native Kentucky coffeetrees, and 20 flowering cherry trees.
  • Tree-themed activities with prizes and free apples for everyone!
  • Bike-blender smoothies made entirely with tree fruits and nuts, including native pawpaws from a Louisville community garden, and peaches and native serviceberries harvested right here on campus!

Co-sponsored by UofL's Sustainability Council, Campus Housing, UofL Dining, UofL Office of Health Promotion, and HSC Green Team.
