In honor of Earth Day and the first anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI's visit to The Catholic University of America in Washington, the university planted 35 donated trees on campus April 22.
The celebration was part of a larger ongoing mission to enhance Washington's tree canopy.
Nearly 140 students, faculty and staff volunteers braved the rain and hail to help at the event. Volunteers could sign up to plant trees for the whole morning or spread mulch and pull weeds from existing beds around campus as part of Campus Beautification Day.
