Students and faculty from the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, part of Temple's School of Environmental Design, planted more than 100 trees in Fairmount Park on Sept. 28 — trees that students grew and nurtured at Temple University Ambler. The project is part of an ongoing partnership between the department, Ambler Arboretum, the Philadelphia Zoo and Fairmount Park to plant more than 2,000 trees, reducing the city's carbon footprint while restoring vital wildlife habitat and helping to control storm-water runoff.
