Land Plans, Policies, Projects, & Records
Practicing sustainable land use is an important aspect of our mission at Saint John’s Arboretum. Maple syruping, prescribed burns, and native plant restoration are a few examples of our ongoing projects.
Saint John’s Arboretum is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as a green forestry operation. This means that Saint John’s harvests timber on a rotating basis in order to promote forest diversity and the natural beauty of the land.
Members of the Saint John's Abbey, CSB/SJU professors, and natural resource professionals have documented the unique biological communities present at Saint John's through research and writing.
Saint John's Abbey & University are committed to energy conservation and providing the campus with renewable energy resources.
