The Earth Week 2019 activities included the planting of new trees by faculty and students, an Open House at the University’s Renewable Energy Education Center, a coloring game and sapling give away for the children of the Lab School, the unveiling of new outdoor solar benches and a presentation on “Clean Fuel for the Environment.”
The week culminated with an Earth Day program in the MLK Jr. Student Center, during which for the eighth consecutive year, the University was named a “Tree Campus USA.”
The Tree Campus USA designation goes to schools that have an implemented plan for tree care that is supported by school allocations, an established Campus Tree Advisory Committee, related education outreach, as well as an annual observance of Arbor Day. Delaware State University is the only educational institution in the state to hold the Tree Campus USA distinction.
The program’s keynote speaker was state Sen. Stephanie L. Hansen, who has been a practicing environmental attorney in Delaware since 2001.
