Tree Campus USA
Wenatchee Valley College is in the process of a Tree Campus USA certification. This national program recognizes college and university campuses that effectively manages their campus trees, connects with the surrounding community to foster healthy, urban forests, and engages students with service-learning opportunities centered on caring for trees.
A diversity of well-managed trees on campus provides multiple benefits for Wenatchee Valley College and our community:
- Tree varieties will be labelled as an opportunity to learn more about arboreal biodiversity;
- Trees provide shade, wind breaks, clean air, and beauty for students and staff;
- Trees help fight climate change by drawing down carbon from the atmosphere and storing it;
- Trees create a more sustainable environment for all to enjoy!
