As disappointing as it has been to cancel the 2020 Zwolle Loggers and Forestry Festival due to COVID-19, the Board of Directors have started looking onward to the 2021 Festival. The Board recognizes the need of a continued representative of the festival, which historically has been chosen at the festival’s annual pageant, but with the pageant’s cancellation during this unprecedented time the festival finds itself in uncharted waters.

Student examines COVID-19 misinformation

Jared Parks, NSU student, is shown as he examines COVID-19 misinformation.

Jared Parks thought he had a good topic for his senior thesis project in the Louisiana Scholars’ College at Northwestern State University. But as a scientific inquiry major with plans to earn a Ph.D. in neuroscience, pharmacology and toxicology, he was worried about misinformation he saw about the Novel Coronavirus.

Parks’ new topic “The Impacts of Spreading Misinformation: the Novel Coronavirus,” addresses a major concern of those fighting the disease.

NSU Elementary Lab student Drew Stewart planted seedlings in his home victory garden. NSU students who began a university garden donated the plants to E-Lab students to plant at their home gardens and hope to resume development of a university garden next semester.

A service project begun by a group of Northwestern State University students in the Presidential Leadership Program blossomed into a victory garden learning experience for NSU Elementary Lab School students.

Earlier in the semester, PLP students worked with Dr. Michelle Morris, professor of educational psychology, to create a vegetable garden to serve university students. Under Morris’s direction, the PLP students planted a variety of vegetable seeds intended to supplement food items available at the NSU Food Pantry.

“After NSU transitioned online, the vegetable plants were given to local children so that they can grow gardens at home,” said Morris, who has worked with several local elementary schools to develop school gardens. Morris contacted Lisa Wiggins, 4-H sponsor at the NSU Elementary Lab School, who has worked with students on school vegetable, herb and flower gardens that attract butterflies and encourage interest in earth sciences.
