WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

  • 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.

    Vam York, 2013

  • As faculty and Director of SFRC, I marveled at the beauty of the forest and Lake Mize as background of the building that was destroyed. 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.

    DR. WAYNE SMITH, 2013
