Spartan Arbor Day 5K Fun Run/Virtual Run

The Virtual Spartan Arbor Day 5K race highlights the importance of MSU campus green spaces and raises funds for planting trees across the vast 5,400+ acre Michigan State University campus in East Lansing, Michigan. Help our Landscape Services team reach their goal of 300+ tree plantings on campus each year!
