On April 6, Richard Bussert, Director of Landscaping and Waste Management, led community members on a tour across the Morningside campus grounds, where they were introduced to the University's wide variety of plants and trees. Attendees took notes and photos as they enjoyed the up close view of perennials, dogwoods, and red maple trees, among the highlights. Bussert, who answered questions pertaining to grounds maintenance, also shared a number of fun facts, including the name of the University's largest tree--the American Sycamore.
