campus & civic engagement

by Lisa Linn de Barona, DPS Special Projects Manager

On a recent Saturday morning, five members of The Princeton Wilderness Society, a student group, assisted Facilities’ Grounds crew with planting three trees on campus. The campus service opportunity was coordinated by the Office of Sustainability in celebration of Earth Month.

After planting trees, the students were treated to a tour of the University’s greenhouses, compost and mulch yard, and tree nursery where they learned how trees are extracted for transplanting on campus.  

Recyling at Reunions

More than 50 EcoReps teamed up to enhance recycling at Move Out and at Reunions 2016 for the seventh consecutive year. The students collected nearly 5,000 #5 and #6 cups at Reunions which were sent to be upcycled into products such as Adirondack chairs, toothbrushes, and other household items.
