5/1: Message to Campus Partners Regarding Landscape Protection

This notice has been sent to Housing, Athletics, UOPD, EMU, Telecom and CPFM

Campus Partners,

Now that Spring is upon us, and many projects and outdoor events across campus are planned, I’d like to take a moment to remind you that the campus landscape is a valuable asset to the University, one that is worth protecting just as any of our facilities are.  A few simple guidelines will help protect our trees, lawns, and plantings for the enjoyment and education of our students and campus visitors alike.

Tips Did you Know?
Follow driving guidelines Driving, and parking on lawns and landscape beds is permitted only with the approval of Campus Planning and Facilities Management.  Yes, even golf carts!


Use the EMU Scheduling Office for your outdoor event They will be able to assist you to make your event successful and avoid damaging practices like driving stakes into the ground and tying ropes to campus plants or fixtures
Contact Facilities Services Landscape Team for advice We are here to support campus activities as best we can, offering advice and guidance on landscape preservation and project planning to minimize your landscape repair costs

Thank you for helping to keep the campus beautiful.
