Columbia Basin College has been named a Tree Campus USA for a fifth consecutive year by the national Arbor Day Foundation.
CBC achieved the title by meeting Tree Campus USA's five standards which include maintaining 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.
"Students are eager to volunteer in their communities and become better stewards of the environment," says John Rosenow, founder and chief executive officer of the Arbor Day Foundation. "Participating in Tree Campus USA sets a fine example for other colleges and universities, while helping to create a healthier planet for us all."
CBC's Arbor Day ceremony is scheduled for April 9.
