Osborne Program

Pursuing A Greener Earth -
One Tree At A Time in Uganda

Saturday, April 27th 2:00 PM
Osborne Nature Center

Jesse Matt is a Clermont, Iowa native and forestry student at Iowa State University. He’s uniquely passionate about both sustainability and forestry, so when an internship opportunity in Uganda combining those interests came up, he wasn’t going to miss it.

His internship included the implementation of agroforestry in the African nation. Agroforestry is the practice of building forests within or around crop lands to reduce erosion, improve soil health, and grow biodiversity. Come and listen to the story of an Iowa farm boy 8,000 miles from home at 2:00 PM on Saturday, April 27
th, at the Osborne Nature Center.
