is a student at William Woods—and,
because of the economy, he had
overstocked inventory and had time
available for the project.
Biodiversity and reforestation
efforts included the 12
th
Street
entrance to campus, replacing
trees damaged by ice storms, planting
trees native to Missouri, improving
the natural look of the campus lake
areas and providing color and wildlife
habitat during different seasons.
Since that time, Kelcie Spradley
formed a student organization
called “Knowing The Woods.” The
organization focuses on maintaining
the natural beauty of the campus
through the trees. In 2010, the club
observed Arbor Day by planting a
tree in memory of Donald J. Dobson,
a WWU alumnus and former WWU
and Fulton High School teacher and
coach. The students also conducted
a service-learning project, teaching
the children in Fulton Preschool more
about trees.
Sharon Mather, WWU advisor
for “Knowing The Woods,” said that
Kelcie Spradley and the students
in the Knowing The Woods Club
were the driving force behind the
university seeking the Tree Campus
USA designation.
“Their enthusiasm and dedication
inspired faculty and staff members
to join them in partnership to plan
events and activities that helped
achieve the ‘Tree Campus USA’ status.”
The student organization is
forming plans to observe Arbor Day
this year and plans to hold an event
during Alumni Weekend, April 15-17.
