At the campus’s Arbor Day Celebration on April 29, 2022, from 2 to 4 p.m. the campus planted three new trees provided by the City of Boise to celebrate the university’s designation. This designation is in recognition of work completed by Lecturer Mari Rice and 30 students in her 300-level Environmental Studies course during the Fall 2021 semester. The project was a collaborative effort between the students, Campus Landscape Services, the Service- Learning office, Campus Sustainability, and the Idaho Department of Lands who trained the class and gave them access to the tree inventory software. With this support, Rice and the students surveyed and documented every tree on campus, developed a Tree Management plan, and published a comprehensive online story map of Boise State’s current trees.
