The Widener University School of Business Administration purchased 20 trees to be planted in Washington Park in Chester on Wednesday from 1:30pm to 3pm to replace those trees damaged in a violent thunderstorm in June 2015. Students and faculty from Widener and employees from UPS will plant the trees.

The event is part of a two-day Sustainability Showcase at Widener focusing on sustainability efforts in the community, on campus, and in the classroom at Widener and beyond.

Come and learn about faculty and students sustainability-related research projects and activities, participate in interactive demonstrations, and see what the university is doing to be more sustainable.
