Aesthetics and education converge at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center's conifer garden , funded by the American Conifer Society and the Iseli Nursery Inc. in Boring, Ore. The grant proposal was submitted (and the plants selected) by Carl J. Bower, a member of the School of Natural Resources Management's horticulture faculty, with the blessing of Richard J. Weilminster, who retired after more than three decades of teaching at the college and its predecessor, Williamsport Area Community College. Bower's article about the garden, an ever-changing addition to the ESC's "living laboratory," will be published in the winter issue of "Conifer Quarterly."
