The committee has been growing over the last few years, and the projects also continue to increase. Be on the look out the week of Earth day and Arbor day, which just so happen to fall the same week as Spring Fling, as there will be some activities for tree lovers!
The SCC Tree Advisory Committee is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of trees in a urban environment, and also incorporating these issues into the curriculum and understanding campus wide. The committee is made up of Arborist from SCC staff, Urban Foresters from the Missouri Department of Conservation, Students, and Faculty.
Just this past weekend members from the SCC Tree Advisory Committee assisted the Missouri Forest ReLeaf, a program that provides free and/or discounted trees to areas in need, with planting just shy of 3,000 trees! Mike Walsh was our fearless leader for the day, and is a great advocate for urban trees.
A lot of exciting green things happening around SCC, and with spring finally here, a lot more exciting things are bound to leaf out! See you outside!
