A brief description of the institution’s third party certified land holdings:
Colorado College has been honored by the Arbor Day Foundation for its commitment to effective urban forest management with a 2018 Tree Campus USA recognition.
CC's campus is officially tree campus certified, meaning tree health is standardized for the coming times. All campus trees will henceforward be cared for by our campus arborist and supported by the tree campus committee made up of both faculty and students. A tree care plan created by the committee will marshal tree management. Students will be taught how to support tree health and plant xeric trees and gardens on Arbor Day each year.
