The Environmental Benefits of CWU's Trees

In 2019, Central Washington University (CWU) was granted the honor of becoming a Tree Campus USA certified campus from the Arbor Day Foundation. This honor is given to universities that have proven to have the management of campus trees in mind, developed community relationships both on and off campus to promote healthy trees, and created service-learning opportunities to maintain trees in the larger community. This tour focusses on trees in CWU’s arboretum and in the area surrounding Dean Hall, a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building. This area of campus has 131 trees. This tour highlights the environmental benefits of seven of these trees, including their role in carbon sequestration, stormwater interception, and energy conservation. This Adventure is sponsored by Central Washington University Environmental Studies and has been granted special permission by Geocaching HQ.
