LC State Arboretum
In 2018 the Vice President of Administrative Services invited me to be the Chair of the Arboretum Committee at Lewis-Clark State College. Since becoming the Chair, the campus arboretum has become a Tree Campus Higher Education with the Arbor Day Foundation and is a Level 1 Accredited Arboretum with ArbNet on the Morton Register of Arboreta.
In my role as Chair, I have also created the brochure for the Campus Tree Tour, designed the Arboretum Logo, and launched the Facebook page. The committee is made up of faculty, staff, students, and community members.
Tree Campus High Education
Annually the application for the award of Tree Campus Higher Education with the Arbor Day Foundation must include how LC State meets each of the five standards of the program.
I prepared the 2022 application, which is then reviewed and edited by the entire committee. To learn more about the Tree Campus Higher Education program, visit the Arbor Day Foundation website. The current LC State Arboretum application is available on the LC State Arboretum webpage.
