The Biology Club, Botany Club, and Aggie Club helped plant a Prairie Fire Crabapple in Cameron Park to celebrate Arbor Day 2017. This will replace a tree that died due to drought. The benefits of planting trees are numerous: trees play an important role in filtering urban storm water runoff, increase energy efficiency and help maintain comfortable indoor temperatures in nearby buildings, absorb pollutants, release oxygen, and help combat climate change.
Cameron University has earned designation from the National Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree Campus USA. Terry Conley, chair of the Department of Agriculture, Biology and Health Sciences, stated, “The university has added more than 1,000 trees to campus in the past decade. We hope our annual Arbor Day observance inspires members of the community to become good stewards of the environment.”
