Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

As a leader in plant conservation, the Arboretum felt that it must also promote sustainable habits within its own operations. In order to address this issue, this project focused on: educating the office staff, collaborating with the local community, and creating educational material centered around sustainability. Examples include: a Composting Pilot Program between the Arboretum and PICA, Understandable waste & energy signage, and a Zero Waste Wedding Guide for venue clientele.
