Nicholls State University Graduates Receive Gift of Oak Trees

Acorns that drop in front of Ellender Memorial Library on the Nicholls State University campus have been collected, grown, and shared with seniors from the 2018 graduating class. Alma Robichaux, Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program (BTNEP) Education/Outreach Coordinator, thought of the idea from acorns sprouting in her front yard and thought it would make a great gift for anyone. Robichaux connected with Dr. Mary Jackson, Allied Health Instructor and Advisor to the Nicholls GREEN Club, to suggest the gift giving project. The overall idea to grow the oaks and give them to the graduating seniors originated from the Nicholls GREEN Club in hopes that they plant the trees to improve the local ecosystem.
