Cool Campus Challenge Creates Shade

From April 1 through April 26 UC Davis, along with the eight other University of California campuses participated in the 2019 Cool Campus Challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to educate and inform the university community to take simple steps to save energy and reduce waste in order to lower its carbon footprint.

Campus-Grown Trees Transformed
