“My role on the tree committee directly led to an independent study in which I gathered information about specific significant trees on campus and assembled it into a digital portal.”
I have worked on a number of projects to preserve and protect the campus trees and educate the Smith community about their importance. I’ve helped plan Arbor Day celebrations, worked as a summer intern at the Botanic Garden and served on the campus tree advisory committee. My role on the tree committee directly led to an independent study in which I gathered all the available information about specific significant trees on campus and assembled it into a digital portal. I spent a great deal of time looking through the college archives, interviewing faculty, photographing trees and building the portal. I deeply enjoyed the chance to delve into the history of the campus landscape, learn about particular trees and help convey that information to others. I'm grateful to have established a project that will outlast my time at Smith!
