He served on the boards of directors of both the National Museum of Natural History and Smithsonian Institution. Additionally, he served on boards for both YMCAs in Harrison County Y’s, as well as serving on their executive boards and as an officer with Clarksburg Rotary Club.
Wickland wrote numerous articles and books on forest ecology, such as his 1996 publication of “Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS). At Chapel Hill Herbarium of UNC Chapel Hill there are over 800 vascular plant specimens she collected as proof for her doctoral thesis that serve as vouchers.
