Come help us celebrate Arbor Day in Kentucky by taking another step to 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 Higher Education (for 12 years running!).
- Help us plant new trees on campus, including a memorial tree at Schneider Hall at 10:30am in honor of the 75th anniversary UofL's Hite Institute of Art & Design, and in memory of two supporters of the Hite's graphic design program — Mike Power (1943-2015) and his son David Power (1971-2021). Both have been significant contributors to the program and both are also UofL alumni!
- A limited number of free native pawpaw fruit tree saplings will be available to take home and plant in your yard or neighborhood!
- UofL Dining invites everyone to the Quad between Davidson & Strickler Halls from 11am-1pm for a Pollinators Love Arbor Day Celebration featuring local honey products produced by bees feeding on blossoming trees: honey lavender shortbreads and honey lemon iced tea. We'll also have UofL's new observation hive on hand so you can safely observe bees from our apiary at work on their honey comb!
Co-sponsored by UofL's Sustainability Council, Facebook Event., HSC Green Team, and UofL Dining.
