Shoreline Community College is a 2019 Tree Campus USA. An Arbor Day Foundation program, Tree Campus USA honors colleges and universities and their leaders for promoting healthy trees and engaging students and staff in the spirit of conservation. Shoreline has earned the designation the past three years.

The College earned the Tree Campus USA distinction by meeting the five core standards for effective campus forest management: a tree advisory committee, a campus tree-care plan, dedicated annual expenditures for its campus tree program, an Arbor Day observance, and student service-learning project.

“Tree Campuses and their students set examples for not only their student bodies but the surrounding communities showcasing how trees create a healthier environment,” said Dan Lambe, president of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Because of Shoreline Community College’s participation air will be purer, water cleaner, and your students and faculty will be surrounded by the shade and beauty the trees provide.”

“Ecological integrity is one of our College’s pillars of excellence,” said Dr. Cheryl Roberts, Shoreline Community College President. “We’re honored to be recognized for the hard work we do every day to be committed stewards of our beautiful campus and instill values of ecological integrity and conservation within our campus community.”

Arbor Day is April 24, 2020. The College will celebrate Arbor Day as part of its annual Earth Week celebrations. Keep an eye on the college calendar for Earth Week and Arbor Day event listings.
