Sustainability Through the Seasons

Sustainability Through the Seasons is our new year-long approach to highlighting and supporting sustainability initiatives. This allows sustainability partners to engage the campus and community in an ongoing basis with programming tailored for the seasons, such as tree planting during the fall and hosting the City Nature Challenge held in spring.
