Gift of 500 trees will make CI a greener campus

CI will soon be a lot greener, thanks to the gift of 500 trees from Alcoa Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Alcoa, a global leader in lightweight metals technology, engineering and manufacturing. As part of its Global ReLeaf pledge, partnering with the nonprofit organization American Forests, Alcoa Foundation awarded CI $25,000 to purchase the trees and more than 80 volunteers will help plant them on campus Saturday, Oct. 4.

From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., employees from Alcoa Fastening Systems, a business unit of Alcoa located in Newbury Park, along with their families, CI staff, students and friends, will gather to plant the trees throughout campus, mostly along the entrance road, University Drive, and in the lawn area of the John Spoor Broome Library. As a special thank you, the University will honor the Alcoa team by dedicating a large tree with a plaque bearing the company’s name.
