News from GREAN, with response from Dr. Sheri Tonn

Hello Friends of GREAN,

This Saturday, January 30th at 10:00 am the PLU Habitat Restoration Project is having a tree-planting volunteer event! All are invited to come and help plant 25 Garry oak trees that have been donated by the Native Plant Salvage Alliance. We will meet near the western slope of the UC (near the volleyball courts behind Foss). Tools, gloves, and snacks will be provided, but good footwear and clothes that can get dirty are recommended.

We have a website (although still under construction) that has some more information available about the project.

Feel free to email me with any questions.
Thank you,


At least one of the Garry oaks on campus is over 400 years old. Once they are established the trees could be around for a very long time. If you want to leave a legacy on campus, participation in this planting is a great way to do it! Thanks in advance to everyone who participates. If you can’t be at this event I’m sure there will be more.

Thanks to GREAN-
