MSU landscape architect honored

The National Association of Landscape Professionals Academic Excellence Foundation has named a Mississippi State landscape architecture associate professor Tim Schauwecker as the 2016 Outstanding Educator of the Year.

As a scientist in the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, Schauwecker recently helped one of the largest global automotive manufacturers take steps to benefit the environment. His work at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Mississippi in Blue Springs helped create a meadow for pollinators.

In 2014, the Blue Springs plant was certified as a Wildlife at Work site, a designation given by the Wildlife Habitat Council. Deemed the model sustainable assembly plant for North American operations, the pollinator gardens along with two other projects support the Wildlife at Work certification.
