JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The University of North Florida is getting greener, literally and figuratively.
Today kicked off Green Week at UNF, as President John Delaney planted the first of nine cherry trees on the campus.
The rest of the week, sponsored by the environmental club "Green Ospreys," includes a sustainability exposition Tuesday morning, in which visitors will learn about recycling, energy conservation and green buildings.
Wednesday, the university will once again be filled with garbage for the fourth annual trash and recycling audit, called "Garbage on the Green." The purpose is to demonstrate the garbage created by the university and to educate consumers limit their trash.
On Thursday, a guest speaker will present an environmental report.
Friday, faculty, staff and students will take a two-hour tour of the St. Johns River along with riverkeeper Neil Armingeon and author Bill Belleville.
