ESM Service Event at the Penn State Arboretum!

The GSO is organizing a spring service event that is open to all graduate students, faculty, staff, and their families. We will be helping with invasive species removal and trail maintenance at the Arboretum from 9 am to 12 noon on Saturday, March 26th. The GSO will provide coffee and donuts, and the Arboretum will provide some beautiful nature! This will be a fun opportunity to spend time outdoors while helping achieve management goals for land near and dear to our hearts.

More details to come but be sure to mark your calendars!
