  • Webster Groves Nature Study Society

    Melanie Colón

    The city of Webster Groves, Missouri, is one of the oldest "suburbs" of St. Louis. Shortly after World War I, citizens of Webster Groves and members of various garden clubs were invited to a meeting by Alfred F. Satterthwait to form an organization to study nature. The result was the formation of the Webster Groves Nature Study Society in 1920 with 85 adult and 30 junior members. The society, usually known as "WIG-NESS," has grown to become the principal organization of amateur naturalists in the St. Louis area. For historical reasons the name has remained unchanged, although there are about 400 members scattered throughout the St. Louis area and several states.
