What is Tree Campus K–12?
Tree Campus K-12 inspires collaboration between schools, students, and communities to facilitate experiences with trees as a learning tool. The program encourages schools and educators to create purposeful opportunities for students to interact with trees by offering resources as well as a framework for becoming recognized and celebrating their efforts with their community.
To achieve recognition, an application is completed to highlight how the school successfully fulfilled the requirements of the four goals for Tree Campus K–12 recognition:
Tree Campus Team
Maintain a group with representation from staff, students, and community dedicated to achieving Tree Campus K–12 recognition.
Conduct activities that connect students to trees and their global benefits, inside or outside of the classroom.
Engage students in a project that brings the school’s tree spirit to the community.
Arbor Day Observance
Hold a celebration of trees within the school or the community.
