Calling all Wildcats!

The WSU Landscapers, CEL, and WSUSU-Sustainable Club's are excited to invite you to another meaningful Xeriscaping project at WSU during Homecoming week!! Join us in replacing water-hungry turf for water-wise plants East side of Parking Lot W7 (parking lot to the west of the soccer field). This is an all day event, from 8am-4pm, on Wednesday, Oct. 5th. CEL will be providing breakfast snacks for the morning volunteers and pizza around noon for afternoon volunteers.

Come prepared to plant, as well as beautify the area with bark mulch.

Volunteers will learn planting skills, about water conservation efforts, and much more! All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend. This service project is highlighting the Service Day of Remembrance.

Community Engaged Learning (CEL) department will be providing food and swag (commemorative gloves, branded trowels, and shirts - all will be given away in a first come, first serve basis)! 

Come enjoy the fresh air outdoors, make meaningful connections, and help further the WSU Water Action Plan. Equipment, tools, and gloves will be provided. Please remember to bring your refillable bottles so we limit plastic waste.

Feel free to bring your friends and family too, as this is a community focused event.

As a faculty/staff member, you are eligible to use work time to participate in this activity. Those who are benefit-eligible may use up to eight (8) hours of Service Leave and log the hours you give when you report your leave at the end of the month. Offices are welcome to participate together or individual staff/faculty may choose a short shift here and there if they need to keep their services open.

See you there, Earthlings!
