Office of Sustainability speaks for the trees—figuratively - News - Illinois State
The Lorax would have been preaching to the choir at Illinois State University. The hero of Dr. Suess’ eponymously titled children’s fable, who “speaks for the trees” and who fought in vain to stop the Once-ler’s destruction of his beloved Truffulas, may have even found a new home in the Fell Arboretum, with its thousands of trees representing 154 species. Either way, his message in support of sustainability would have definitely struck a chord with Missy Nergard.
