Nature Walk on Arbor Day - Friday, April 28, 12 noon

Join us for a noontime nature walk on Friday, April 28 as we celebrate the arrival of spring and National Arbor Day, when individuals and groups are encouraged to plant and care for trees.

The stroll begins in front of Yale Health on the Farmington Canal, heads over to the Center for Emotional Intelligence, and ends with a yummy snack and a give-away in the Divinity School Common Room above Marquand Chapel. Along the way, we’ll visit groves of trees planted over the past few years to honor staff celebrating milestone anniversaries. We’ll also hear from Yale experts about the importance of trees, Yale’s natural biodiversity, sustainability points of interest, and ‘hidden’ gem green spaces on campus.

If you previously requested to have a tree planted in your honor through Yale’s Staff Service Recognition program, this is a good opportunity to see how the trees are growing and have your photo taken alongside a commemorative tree.

Register to attend the Nature Walk for Arbor Day at Yale.
