CBU community observes Spring Arbor Day with new trees and plants
Riverside, Calif. (April 9, 2018) – More than 80 students at California Baptist University celebrated Spring Arbor Day by planting scores of trees and plants on April 7.
The Facilities and Planning Services at CBU and the student Environmental Science Club organized the event. In total, students planted nine new trees in addition to 140 plants throughout campus.
Jonah Lay, president of the Environmental Science Club, said the event is a way for students to honor God’s creation.
“It’s good to see students coming together and caring for God’s creation,” said Lay, an environmental science senior. “It’s important to appreciate and care for the community God has given us.”
Lindsey Anderson, a health science sophomore, said she enjoys taking care of CBU.
“Our campus is beautiful, so why not help it,” said Anderson. “It’s better not only for the campus but the environment.”
The Arbor Day Foundation recently recognized CBU as a 2018 Tree Campus USA. It was the fourth such recognition in as many years.
