ESF Introduces Campus Sustainability Walking Tour 5/12/2022


The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), the most distinguished institution in the nation that focuses on the study of the environment, is pleased to announce its new Campus Sustainability Walking Tour.

"The ESF campus tour showcases what ESF is doing to create a sustainable environment and it also demonstrates for other institutions how they can incorporate sustainable practices into their own facilities," said ESF President Joanie Mahoney.

The virtual tour, created by the College's Sustainability Division, highlights the sustainable building features and operations found on the Syracuse campus. Users can learn about the campus buildings, histories, and traditions through the main tour, and explore the buildings for a comprehensive look into how they contribute to ESF's prominence in sustainability.

Initially developed to enhance student learning about sustainability outside of the classroom and support ESF's Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) reporting, it is now also used for admissions, enrollment, and campus engagement.


The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) is dedicated to the study of the environment, developing renewable technologies, and building a sustainable and resilient future through design, policy, and management of the environment and natural resources. Members of the College community share a passion for protecting the health of the planet and a deep commitment to the rigorous application of science to improve the way humans interact with the world. The College offers academic programs ranging from the associate of applied science to the Doctor of Philosophy. ESF students live, study and do research on the main campus in Syracuse, N.Y., and on 25,000 acres of field stations in a variety of ecosystems across the state.
