SCC Tree Crazy...

SCC, as you all know by now, is  Tree Campus USA certified through the National Arbor Day Foundation. The SCC Tree Advisory Committee is always working hard to raise the awareness of trees on campus and the important role trees play in the community and especially their importance in an urban environment.

Mike Walsh discusses the importance of trees in the community and explains the program, accompanied by his awesome mustache...

I recently had the pleasure of working with some SCC Ecology students at the Missouri Forest ReLeaf nursery, where they were kind enough to put in some time to give back, and get a little dirty in the process. Nine student volunteers showed up and worked with Mike Walsh, Forest ReLeaf coordinator, and planted around five hundred trees!

Another event the Tree Advisory Committee is facilitating is a Tree Scavenger Hunt right here on campus! There are even prizes to be won for those tree hunters that really take charge... Packets will be available at the Spring Fling, where the Tree Advisory Committee will have a table.

I know this is a short Blog, but as you know April is a busy time for us in the Green Industry. I promise to return next week! In the mean time I'll see you outside!
