UNM Celebrates Arbor Day

The Uni­ver­sity of New Mex­ico (UNM) will cel­e­brate National Arbor Day with a week’s worth of tree plant­i­ngs and events. UNM is a nation­ally rec­og­nized cam­pus arbore­tum and pro­vides oppor­tu­ni­ties for the pub­lic and edu­ca­tors to see a diverse selec­tion of openly grown trees. Sev­eral stu­dent groups includ­ing Biol­ogy Under­grad­u­ate Soci­ety (BUGS), Lobo SEEDS, and Asso­ci­a­tion of Stu­dent Land­scape Archi­tects worked with arborists in the Phys­i­cal Plant Depart­ment to choose the trees and loca­tions for planting.

Below is a list of the daily events, host of each tree plant­ing and the type of tree to be planted in parentheses.

Mon­day, April 22 — hosted by BUGS
