This ride is suitable for all skill levels, and the group will travel together at a moderate pace. Helmets and a full water bottle strongly encouraged. Email to sign up or if you have questions.

Meet outside the Athletic Complex

The tour will begin at the LEED Platinum Athletic Center and weave through campus to Hillman Hall. Highlights will include recent solar installations, rain gardens, green roofs, pervious pavers, and more. Sustainability features of the East End project will be detailed with a birds-eye view of the construction site. The tour will last approximately 90 minutes.

Arboretum Tour

Did you know that the Danforth campus is recognized by Tree Campus USA, and recently achieved Level 1 Arboretum status? Take a self-guided tour of the campus trees using the new interactive website and corresponding tree tags, which will help identify the species and their unique contributions to the WashU community.

In addition to attending one of the sustainability activities, you can volunteer at one of the zero waste stations to reinforce the recycling culture on campus!
