150 Trees beautification campaign
Support KU Medical Center's 150 Trees campaign - our goal is to plant 150 trees across the campus. Planting trees will add to the beauty of our landscape, while improving air quality and providing oxygen, shade and wildlife habitat, plus so much more. Each tree is $250 and can be purchased by departments, groups or individuals, and you can select the area of campus where you want your tree planted. Click here to purchase your tree and view the campus zones. Be sure to attend the Murphy Courtyard event April 27 to hear a campaign update. If you missed Dr. Girod's message about the campaign and courtyard event, read it here.
