Arbor Day Celebration: Volunteers to Plant 100 Trees
Saturday, November 3 | East Campus Lot on Main Campus
UTSA will team up with the City of San Antonio to celebrate Arbor Day on Saturday, November 3 at the UTSA Main Campus, East Campus 3 Lot off of Valero Way. Everyone from UTSA and the community are invited to volunteer to plant nearly 100 fifteen- to thirty-gallon trees, provided by COSA Parks and Recreation. Tree planting hours are from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Volunteer Here.
The event is part of the city’s 300th Anniversary–Tree Centennial–celebration.
Tree Adoption: 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. COSA Parks and Recreation will give away 300 trees to members of the community. Several species of five-gallon trees will be available for adoption while supplies last. They include various oaks, sycamore, Texas mountain laurel, yaupon holly, Eve’s necklace, and more. Come get a tree to plant in your yard for Arbor Day!
The Arbor Day tree planting event coincides with UTSA’s “Monster Mash Pumpkin Smash.” That will be held on the East Campus Lots 1 and 2 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event features student teams who constructed catapults/trebuchets from which pumpkins are launched, and winners are determined by distance achieved. The adjacent STEM Fair will consist of tables and experiments prepared by College of Engineering and College of Science student organizations.
Stop by and pick up your Monster Mash Pumpkin Smash tee shirt, offered by the College of Engineering for a mere $5. Get there early to buy one with a glow in the dark moon. Proceeds support Engineers Week activities.
