In conjunction with the sustainability council, OGT is helping to offset MIIS’ carbon emissions.  A group of students and community members spent October 10, 2010 collecting acorns at Ft. Ord for a reforestation project.  MIIS and CSUMB will turn those little acorns into oak trees and within the year plant them at Ft. Ord.  Thank you to everyone who helped organize and participate in this event.
