As Seen On Campus

Look at how CaLL has already been active and invovled on TCNJ's campus!

Pilot Turf and Landscaping Management Program - "Through training from experts, and soil tests to learn about the current soil conditions and what needs to be done to improve soil quality, students and facilities staff will learn what it means to manage turf organically on a 1000-square-foot pilot area."

Native Wildflower Meadow - "Through training from experts, students, facilities staff, and faculty will use this area to engage in learning about core sustainability ideas. This area will allow for new research on native plants, biodiversity, and more to be done, as well as offer a new recreation area for students, faculty, and the Ewing community."

TCNJ Marilyn Gray Early Childhood Education Outdoor Classroom - "An area on campus by the Education building (the side that faces Forcina Hall), that combines meeting space with native plants and trees provides professors and students an area to engage in outdoor learning."

Research potential redesigns of Route 31 near campus - "Professor Brennan (Engineering) and Professor Bates (Sociology), explore ways to make the entrances and roadways near campus more inviting and safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and other non-car traffic (such as skateboards) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from private cars."
