Pippy Park is one of Memorial University's oldest community partners and again for Community Service-Learning Day Fall 2011 they partnered with CDEL to provide a venue and project for MUN students to volunteer. Students spent 2 hours planting baby seedlings of 3 species all around the Park's Campground to replenish dying trees on a beautiful October morning before a provided lunch, afternoon presentations and reflection activities.

Overall students, faculty and staff took part in :

  • Restoring the habitat by planting young seedlings through the campground in the park
  • Cleaning and tending to one of Canada's largest natural spaces
  • Learning about the park, the natural environment, our (human) impact on the global environment the importance of preserving our natural landscape
