Green Committee


The purpose of this Committee is to advocate for the responsible preservation, sustainability and enhancement of the natural beauty, environment and natural resources of the Sunnyside Campus habitat.


  • Gardening
  • Trash pick-up on Massanetta Springs Road
  • Recycling
  • Green Earth will accept plastics # 2. You just have to make sure there is a recycle number in the triangle on the plastic.
  • The committee has also been working with Sunnyside management and some JMU Graduate Students to develop a Sustainability Plan for Sunnyside. You can download a copy of the plan in Powerpoint format.

Tree Identification
The committee has also taken the lead in identifying and labeling a wide variety of trees on the campus. You can find identifying signs and tags on over 100 different trees across campus. It is a good chance to learn one of the great resources we have here in the Valley and on campus. Map of Tree Locations   Identification of Tree Species
