POTD-4 21 20-EARTH DAY_Old Willow

Old willown Penn State

We celebrate 50 years of Earth Day by honoring one of the most historic trees on the University Park campus, The original Old Willow was located near the Allen Street gate, grown from a sprig provided by Evan Pugh. The Old Willow that stands near Old Main today was grown from an offshoot of the original and planted at its present location in 1921 where it has stood for nearly 100 years. Social distancing measures have shifted this year's Earth Day celebration into a virtual space, with broad opportunities for participation from students, faculty and staff at all Penn State campus locations.
