CALS Land Grant Graduate Fellowships

DNR graduate student Christine Moskell has been selected to receive a two-year Land Grant Graduate Fellowship from CALS. Four fellowships were awarded this year. Christine¬† was selected primarily because her “active engagement in extension programming was well-planned and had identifiable and measurable goals.”

According to Christine:¬† “My research and extension project will focus on the development of engagement strategies and educational outreach tools for increasing residents’ participation in urban tree planting and in the post-planting maintenance and stewardship of trees. My research and extension project aims to enhance the coordination between local government, non-profit organizations, cooperative extension, and residents for urban forest management so that the environmental, health and community benefits provided by urban trees can be sustained.”
