Every year, CPFM Grounds Crew organizes University Day across campus. University Day is a way to engage all of campus in the maintenance and improvements of grounds. Students, staff, and faculty planted flowers and more, to help prepare campus for commencement on June 13th. Pictured below are CPFM staff helping to make the day a success!
Willamette River Natural Area
Campus had some special visitors this week, goats Bert, Ernie, and 8 of their goat friends! The goats spent a few days helping to clear invasive species (like blackberries) from the Willamette River Natural Area. The Office of Sustainability organized this event to celebrate the recently created area, and showcase the new proposed management plan to support research, education, recreation, and restoration. This project is unique because it involves faculty, students, staff, and goats! CPFM staff from the offices of sustainability, campus planning, and facilities services will serve as the management team for the project. Development of the Plan will be led by JK Environments, a local consultant with expertise in projects that evaluate, enhance, and restore the natural environment. As part of the process a habitat advisory team (HAT) comprised of local experts and key stakeholders will provide technical expertise and input to inform the Plan.

Pesticide Application Reporting
A new ANVIL application was rolled out this month. The project involved Sharon Ginn, Rosalee Clanton, Kevin Farthing (Facilities Services), Justin White, Ken Kato (Innovation Lab), Justin Porter, Mike Freel (FASS), and Steve Stuckmeyer (EHS). The application will allow the Landscape crew to satisfy the Oregon Department of Agriculture pesticide application reporting. Using an IPAD and the ANVIL AiM application, required checkpoints are recorded in real time and a report is generated for EHS/FS from the PM checkpoints. This project embodies our core value of collaboration; which includes teamwork, engagement, and mutual support.
“A big thank you to Rob Berg and team for helping fill the gap between what vendors had provided and what was needed on site at a recent HEDCO project. We received the wrong mounting pieces, several times, for an exterior camera, and as time was running short Rob had a mount fabricated to enable the installation to be completed. And it ended up looking better than the options the vendor had provided!”

"Kersey, Pablo, Nick, and Kevin:
Thank you very much for your support of our Campus-wide Climate Survey. Pablo and Kersey's support was vital in mobilizing participation from our classified staff colleagues. Many thanks to you--Kevin and Nick for allowing DEI to benefit from their expertise and brilliance. We also appreciated that Nick took on extra work to ensure that his colleagues took the survey.
Reports from Gallup indicate that 55% of UO campus employees participated in the IDEAL Campus Survey. That, to me, is a strong finish for all of us. Congratulations, and thank you again.
Again, thank all of you very much for your support during the data-collection phase of this crucial process. Onward to data analysis, reporting and action"
Thank you to Terry Huuki for help preparing Treetops to be used!

"These past two weeks (Natalie) graciously stepped in to help me with several projects. When someone from FASS told us they’d be out for a week unexpectedly, Natalie jumped in and took over all the logistics planning for the U&E director finalists. And when I got behind planning an event at the Riverfront – yes, the goat thing – Natalie again agreed to jump in and help make it successful. Based on these and a couple other requests, I can see that Natalie is super capable, responsible, and reliable. Plus she has a great customer service ethic."

"I am writing to show appreciation for Mike and John. They were working down the hall today when I interrupted them to ask about a sticky window in my office. They kindly come to check it out and and were able to open it with a little muscle power. They were both kind and helpful. Many thanks to your team!"
