No smoking in the forest

smoke-free campusSince January 2011, the University of Michigan instituted a No Smoking rule for all their properties, which includes Saginaw Forest.

We just got the sign just last week, and although there is only one that is placed at the gate, I would hope that the rule makes a good deal of sense, and that there needn't be any further additional warnings about having burning things in a forest.

The rule is quite easy to follow: no smoking in the forest.

For more information as to why this property is included (as well as other information about the initiative) in the University of Michigan's smoking ban, check out the U's smoke-free initiative Q&A page.


  1. It is good what has been done by University of Michigan but do you believe that this rule will survive longer. I am not sure but still nice information. Thank you!!

  2. I have no idea whether the rule will remain a part of the University's set of property rules. However, until it does, it's another rule for this property.

  3. prohibiting smoking will never prevent people not to smoke this. They will find another way to smoke. I believe we need to find a strong substitute of smoking like Vaporizers.
