North Lake College has been honored with 2019 Tree Campus USA® Recognition by the Arbor Day Foundation for its commitment to promoting healthy trees and engaging students and employees in the spirit of conservation.

Our campus has met the five core standards for sustainable campus forestry required by Tree Campus USA, which include an established tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance, and the sponsorship of student service learning projects.

“It is an honor to obtain this award for our seventh year,” said Chris Marrs, Senior Manager of NLC Facilities Services. “It takes a large commitment from the college and students to make this happen.”

Tree Campus USA, an Arbor Day Foundation program, honors colleges and universities across the nation for their commitment to effective urban forest management by providing solutions to global challenges.
