Clayton State University and the Clayton State Tree Committee are hosting the University’s first Arbor Day Observance on Friday, Apr. 26, at 10:30 a.m. There will be an Arbor Day Ceremony and tree planting in the University Quad. Vice President for Business and Operations Corlis Cummings will be the guest speaker for the event. In addition, Loch, the Clayton State mascot, will also make a special appearance to support Arbor Day.
Following the ceremony, there will also be trees planted at various locations throughout campus. The trees that will be planted around campus will be Shumard Oaks, which are native to Georgia. Tree identification signage will also be placed on native trees along the walk path behind Spivey Hall and the Music Education Building.
All are welcome to attend the event and participate in the Arbor Day activities.
