Volunteers read the 2017 Giverny book winner to preschoolers
The 15° Laboratory, Dunn-Seiler Museum, and the MSU Tree Campus USA cosponsored an outreach event at Emerson Family School in Starkville, Mississippi. Volunteers read the 2017 Giverny book winner, The Tree Lady, to preschoolers and donated classroom book copies to teachers on February 15, 2018. The Tree Lady tells the story of Kate Sessions, who researched and planted arid-tolerant trees in San Diego’s Balboa Park for an interdisciplinary science story of geoscience and biology.
