Campus Beautification Day
Campus Beautification Day is an extremely popular annual tradition at the UM, thanks to the hard work and contributions of the volunteers who take the time out of their busy schedules to help spruce up the campuses. Staff are encouraged to come out and have fun with their co-workers.
This year’s event takes place on May 25th at the Bannatyne campus (rain dates May 26th) and May 31st on the Fort Garry Campus (rain date of June 1st). BBQ lunch for all even those that aren’t able to come out to plant/cleanup the campus.
Activities will begin at 9:00 a.m. and go until noon both days. The entire university community is invited to join in planting while connecting with co-workers and getting some fresh air.
We have coordination stations starting at 9 am. Bannatyne coordination station will be at the BBQ location on the green space between Medical Services and Medical Rehab. There are 2 locations at Fort Garry: UMSU & Physical Plant. All 3 locations will have refreshments, Timbits, hand tools (limited numbers we are encouraging staff/students to bring their own) along with garbage bags and T-shirts.
A free barbecue lunch will follow at both campuses, and everyone is encouraged to attend even if they did not partake in the gardening activities. Participants can also enter to win some great prizes. See maps for BBQ locations FG map and BC map.
More information will be provided closer to the event. We look forward to seeing you!
