‘Living Legacy’ starts as part of Master Plan focus on greening campus
The Health Science Center’s new Living Legacy program provides a way to remember a lost loved one, commemorate a special event like a birth or marriage, or mark any occasion by planting a tree or sponsoring a flower bed on campus. Facilities Management, sponsor of the program, has planned an Earth Day celebration for a kickoff tree and flower bed planting on April 22. Fees must be paid by April 20 to participate in the Earth Day celebration.

Trees and flower beds will be available for purchase and commemoration any time. Fees and types of trees available are listed on the Living Legacy Web site.

All proceeds will be used for the Living Legacy program, and any profits made from tree sales and bed adoptions will be used to offset costs incurred by the Health Science Center for the trees. Facilities will provide $100 toward the cost of any of the largest 95-gallon trees purchased through Living Legacy.

Living Legacy plantings will be marked with an 8.5-by-11-inch oak plaque bearing the name of the person honored. After a year, the plaque will be removed and given to the purchaser.

Living Legacy trees and beds will be planted in designated areas on campus so Health Science Center visitors know where to find the live memorials. The trees and beds are part of the planned greening of the Health Science Center campus, as designated in the Master Plan.
