Today marks International Day of Forests and Marjon University has a wonderful forest with amazing wildlife. The back entrance of the University is a little forest with some huge trees and a little lake. Also at the University it is not out of the ordinary to see Deers around the grassland and the forest. Many Deers especially at night walk around the Uni. The Forest at Marjon also has many Squirels and birds and is a nice place to go for a walk. A forest is not a usual thing to see at a University but it is something the Uni embraces and encourages. Marjon has many signs encouraging students to be friendly to the deers.
The International Day of Forests was established by the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2013. Each year, various events celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests, and trees outside forest which will benefit the future generation. Today marks the ten year anniversary of the day and it is one to be celebrated here at Marjon.
Today also marks National Flower Day which is right after the first official spring day. “Flowers perfectly embody the emotions associated with spring” said the nationaltoday. Marjon University also has a variety of flowers in the forests.
