The goal of the Green Trail is to create a walkable path for campus and community to follow and learn about Marshall University’s many green initiatives, and how you too can “Be Marshall Green“. We invite you to participate in our Green Trail and to visit our Virtual Green Tour.
At “green stations” along the Green Trail, signs will display interactive information about each location, along with QR codes. Brochures are available for a more self-guided experience.
You can also Geocache the Green Trail.
By following the trail, visitors will be able to easily tour our campus, learn how we are working to “Be Marshall Green”, and see how to live more sustainably. We host guided teaching tours of our Green Trail, and to use our “Green Stations” for hands-on learning with students and residents of all ages. Our Green Sustainability Education Modules curriculum development project also utilizes the Sustainability Gardens and other locations along the Green Trail. Through this education outreach, we hope to inspire all to embrace living a more sustainable lifestyle.
This project is funded in part by a grant from the Dunn Foundation.
We look forward to growing this site along with the trail, as we continue to expand our green initiatives on campus, and beyond.
