students work with rakes to even the mulch in trails in Bluethenthal Wildflower Preserve

UNCW Loves Trees - Planting Day

It is time again for Seahawks to roll up their sleeves and volunteer to work on our favorite natural area on the main campus and at Bluethenthal Wildflower Preserve. Thanks to the Student Government Association's 2019 Day of Service, trails were mulched, debris collected, and trees lost during Hurricane Florence were replaced. In the fall of 2020, students remulched the trails in Bluethenthal and planted some new trees in the area. We are excited to provide more opportunities in spring 2021 for students to give their time and efforts to this beloved preserve.

This endeavor exemplifies the UNCW values of community engagement, excellence, and integrity. Working together, your 2020-21 Student Government Association, Business Affairs, Landscaping, Sustainability, and Natural Areas Committee are excited to provide this socially-distanced volunteer experience that will result in an even better preserve and more enjoyable resource for UNCW and the surrounding communities.
