Lewis University students, faculty and staff celebrated Earth Day and Arbor Day with clean-up and restoration efforts on the Romeoville campus.
On April 22, volunteers removed buckthorn and invasive species along the Burnham Centennial Nature Trail on the Romeoville campus. They removed intrusive species, so not to degrade other non-detrimental living life on the nature trail. To restore what was removed earlier in the week, the Arbor Day program featured volunteers planting native plants and species.
The events not only benefit the wellbeing of the earth, but they also engage and educate the students and faculty of Lewis University. For three consecutive years, Lewis University has been designated a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. Morton Arboretum also designated the campus an arboretum.
