    A couple interesting developments from Tulane: The Arbor Day Foundation named the university a 2009 Tree Campus USA University for "its dedication to campus forestry management and environmental stewardship." The program honors schools that promote healthy urban forests and engage campuses in environmental care. Tulane met the five criteria for the designation: the institution of a campus tree advisory committee, a tree-care plan (and budget for plan), tree-care service-learning projects, and, of course, observing Arbor Day. And for No. 2: Here's a nice little video announcing the New Orleans Department of Public Works plans to paint bike lanes on St. Charles Avenue from Carrollton to Nashville avenues.
  • A Guerilla Garden project in the Lower 9th Ward is seeking donations to get off (and out of) the ground. The Backyard Gardener's Network envisions a vibrant green space in place of the blight that's populating the neighborhood.
  • Tomorrow, Allied Waste of Metairie is offering the first in a new monthly citywide recycling dropoff event. The company accepts paper, cardboard, newspaper, magazines, junk mail, plastic soda and water bottles; milk, water and juice bottles; aluminum, tin and metal cans and any No. 1 or 2 plastics. Stop by with your recyclables tomorrow between 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 804 L & A Road. The next collections take place the first Saturday of every month.
