Terra’s Rob Thompson and Anna Werle visited the Monticello Sculpture Gardens at Lewis and Clark Community College to kick-off the planning for the 2019 Themed Garden Show. Next year will be Lewis and Clark’s – and Terra’s – 9th annual show! We’ll be spending the winter refining the garden designs, so stay tuned.

Rob and Anna also presented streetscape renovation plans for Elm Street, the north entrance to campus, including new LED lighting and a stunning, double-rowed allee featuring a row of ornamental trees backed by a row of canopy trees on either side of the street. The allee will be the first piece of Lewis and Clark's larger campus-wide tree planting and reforestation plan that was recommended in the recently completed Campus Tree Management Plan by the Davey Resource Group (funded by a grant from the US Forest Service). In addition to the Management Plan, Lewis and Clark’s urban forest data is now publicly accessible on Davey Resource Group’s Tree Keeper website!

Allee tree planting is scheduled to begin in November 2019.
