Last Wednesday, the Faculty of Arts launched it’s Arts Eco Action initiative with a tree planting ceremony to symbolize a new commitment to sustainability on campus. Students from a branch of this initiative, Nature in the City, helped to prepare the grounds for the new trees added in the Ryerson quad. EUS professor Andrew Millward spoke about his release of the customized tree app for the Ryerson campus, RyersonNC.ca, to keep track an monitor growth of our urban forest.
