Law StudentsUF Law students and faculty were joined by residents of the Golfview Neighborhood Association on Saturday, Oct. 6, for the Environmental & Land Use Law Society’s (ELULS) fall semester work day at the Law School Woods. In an effort to restore the property, the group removed exotic invasive plants species, built small earthen erosion control structures, picked up trash and debris, and laid mulch on some of the trails through the woods. In adopting the UF Conservation Area, directly west of the law school, the ELULS has pledged to host two work days each year, one in the fall semester and one in the spring semester. The next event ELULS will host is a Landscape Architecture Design Charette noon-6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 19, in the Faculty Dining Room. As part of the design phrase of the Law School Woods Restoration Project, landscape architecture students will be providing various drawings on the design of the woods. From these drawings, one final design will be selected and submitted to the UF Office of Facilities and Planning for approval. All faculty and students are welcome to stop by and participate in or simply observe the charette.
