Engineering professor leads Earth Day activities at Fayette campus

If you noticed young maple trees, their roots contained in bags, strategically placed around Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, then they came from longtime faculty member David Meredith’s herb garden. If you passed a group of people picking up litter along University Drive recently, then it was Meredith and one of his classes. If you happened to see students planting trees on campus last week, they were brought there by Meredith, their instructor, an associate professor of engineering.
