Arbor Day Tree Planting

Treat yourself to a well deserved break from finals.

Middlebury College once again has been certified as a Tree Campus by the Arbor Day Foundation, and the landscape department is celebrating by planting more trees (naturally).

Join us Friday, May 18 from 1-4 pm, just north of Battell, as we plant 5 large shade trees. The holes will be pre-dug, so it won’t be too much work. (Sorry, can’t let you run the backhoe, I would if I could). Some reunion years from now you’ll be lounging under the giant tree you helped plant.
