Jim Wilson Honored by Forest Park Forever
Forest Park Forever has awarded COE faculty member Jim Wilson with a 2014 Kathryn Nelson Keeper of the Park Award. The honor recognizes individuals or organizations that have demonstrated exceptional energy and creativity for the benefit of Forest Park. Wilson serves as the E. Desmond Lee Endowed Professor for Experiential and Family Education at UMSL. In this role, he has collaborated extensively with Forest Park Forever, fostering environmental education for and with the Park’s partner institutions, the Missouri Department of Conservation, K-12 teachers and young students from urban areas, inspiring all of them to use the Park to bring nature and ecology alive inside and outside the classroom.
The annual awards are named for the late Kathryn Nelson, who co-chaired the Forest Park Master Planning process and served on FPF’s Board of Directors.
