Illinois State University is proud to be a Tree Campus USA institution. The Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with Toyota, has several programs that promote sustained, healthy community forests. Examples of other programs include Tree City USA, Tree Line USA and Community Tree Recovery.
As part of maintaining the Tree Campus USA status, annual Arbor Day and Earth Day events are hosted in the Fell Arboretum. The Arboretum tree walks, planting demonstrations and community outreach programs are all related to this initiative.
Illinois State University is proud of this recognition by The Arbor Day Foundation as it affirms the mission of the Fell Arboretum.
