Aggie Replant coordinates the largest, one-day, student-led, environmental service project in the nation!
Replant Day strives to improve the Bryan/College Station community, bring students together through tradition, and provide an avenue for environmental service and action through a yearly tree planting event.
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but due to inclement weather today's Bastrop Lost Pines Recovery event is CANCELLED
We are trying to plan for an alternative or extended volunteer opportunity next weekend, please stay tuned for more information.
Aggie Replant is getting involved in Bastrop State Park!
This February, Aggie Replant will be participating in a state wide event facilitated by Bastrop State Park and the Texas A&M Forest Service. People from all over will come to volunteer and help the community of Bastrop recover from the devastating fires of 2011. Aggie Replant was the first student-led university organization to participate in this campaign. We hope to recruit over 600 Aggies to come together for selfless service, leadership, and respect for the environment to plant 10,000 seedling trees.
