Arbor Week - During this event, members of the Department of Landscape Architecture visit schools, explaining the wonders of trees, urban forestry, landscape architecture and other related professions. We explore the school’s campus with the kids, looking at the wonders Mother Nature has provided us. The students get an opportunity to help plant a tree and are therefore afforded the opportunity to see the tree mature as they continue their education.
