Media Advisory -- Tree Restoration Project

After losing hundreds of trees in the May 8 windstorm, Southern Illinois University Carbondale is ready to begin the restoration process. Chancellor Samuel Goldman and several students will plant trees outside of Wheeler Hall at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 6. The event also will serve as a call for volunteers from the campus and the community to lend a hand on Friday, Nov. 13. SIUC’s goal is to plant 200 trees around the campus that day.

Reporters, photographers and camera crews are welcome to attend the Nov. 6 tree planting ceremony.
