Work Day Description:  Tree tagging and measurement. We will locate trees that were planted in 2000 as part of the ARBOR restoration project along the White River just west of campus. Once located, the trees will be measured and re-tagged. Trash claenup will also be part of these projects.

Participants must wear clothes appropriate for outdoor field work: long pants and appropriate footwear (water proof or water resistant boots, such as mud boots, hiking boots, etc. that - minimally - cover the ankle) are required (NO Crocs, Keens, or similar footwear permitted).  Water, gloves, equipment and a light snack will be provided.

Meeting Location: We will meet at the Michigan Street entrance of the Lilly ARBOR restoration site. The entrance is at street level (just across from Veterans' Hospital and north of Michigat St.) and is a gravel road (look for the yellow poles and a chain gate - and the big yellow CEES Service Learning sign board). There is little to no parking available near the site. Please plan to park on campus if at all possible. Please take a look at both maps! To get there follow Michigan west until the bridge at Porto Alegre. Turn right and the meeting location will be on your left (Approximately 608 Porto Alegre St) There is a link to the shuttle schedule at the top of the page. This service is free to IUPUI students and has drop off locations very near to our meeting location.
