On Friday four members, Carrie Carson, Clare Lloyd Owen, Travis McDaniels, and Phil Simpson, of the environmental capstone course met with David Wiseman who is heading RCsustain's effort on the Elizabeth Campus tree planting project. The goal of the project is to establish a nursery of cherry trees as well as a long term landscaping plan. The long term goal of the school is to establish 60 trees on Elizabeth Campus over 5-7 years. Our class will focus primarily on the cherry tree portion.
During the meeting we reviewed the initial map indicating the initial ideas. Moving forward we will be meeting with Bill Martin, head of grounds crew and collaborating with Dr. O'Neill to figure out the best method to map the trees using GPS.
