Tree planting event at the Vassar Farm, Friday September 19, 2014

You are invited to join us for a tree planting event Friday, 9/19 on the Farm from 2-5pm. This is the second year we have received a NYDEC grant to plant trees on the farm for watershed & habitat health.

This past spring Vassar was certified by Tree Campus USA, through the Arbor Day Foundation, to solidify and recognize our commitment to Vassar as an Arboretum. We also are coming to the close of our first season of naturalization on campus, through which 4 areas were selected to become no-mow zones this summer. Bird houses have been installed at these sights and wildflowers have sprung up in the place of traditional turf grass.
