We had a beautiful day on Friday, and with the support of over 30 volunteers, plus staff from KU Operations, we were able to plant all the trees, shrubs, and most of the other plants. Thanks to Facilities Services, the last of the mulch was spread and vinca planted on Monday. The transformation of this site is remarkable! 


Thank you to everyone who has donated. Projects like this would not be possible without your support!

A little snow won't get in in the way of Replant!

October 31, 2019

The lawn between Lindley and Marvin Halls may be covered in a blanket of snow today, but by tomorrow the snow will be gone, and volunteers will be busy filling in the newly tilled beds with shrubs and perennials and planting trees throughout the lawn. Stop by to lend the crews a hand or just to see the transformation taking place!  

Replant Site Preparation is Underway

October 24, 2019

Replant is just about a week away, and the site is being prepared for planting! A new concrete pad is ready for the benches (thanks to KU Student Senate and the Student Environmental Advisory Board) and the old, worn out shrubs have been removed. New planting beds along the buildings and sidewalks will be prepared soon.


Thanks to everyone who has donated to the campaign so far!  We couldn't Replant Mount Oread without your support! If you would like to stop by the site on November 1 - just to check on progress or to grab a shovel and help out - we'd love to see you and be able to thank you in person.  If you plan to be there for lunch, be sure to register at by October 29.

Choose a giving level



Your donation at this level grow into even bigger impacts. Every dollar goes toward improving the campus landscape and supporting our volunteers.



Help line Lindley and Marvin Halls with cheerful hydrangea bushes. The trees may be the show-stoppers with Replant, but the understory plants help make our campus one of the most beautiful in the nation.


Japanese Maple

Every tree is planted by students, staff, faculty and community members. Cheer them on by helping provide a healthy lunch for those hungry volunteers.


Elm Tree

Your contribution toward trees for Replant projects will provide Jayhawks with shade and enjoyment for decades to come.
