    • We need to encourage all our students and citizens to appreciate the value of forestry to our environment. This learning center can play a most important part in this endeavor.

Mitzi and I want future students and faculty to have the same experiences. An enhanced Learning Center will make that possible and reach greater numbers of the public to help them understand the significant roles of forests in their lives.
