Regent McMillan's Visit to the Cloquet Forestry Center
In October, we received a special guest at the Cloquet Forestry Center (CFC). Regent David McMillan of the 8th congressional district requested a visit to learn more about Minnesota’s timber industry and the Department’s research, outreach, and teaching. Interim Head Mike Kilgore, former Department Head Alan Ek, CFC Director Andy David, and CFC Forest Manager Kyle Gill led a tour to show Regent McMillan what goes on at the Center, including undergraduate and graduate education, activities of the forestry community, and the important research conducted there. The visit would not have been possible without the aid and connections of Wayne Brandt, Executive Vice President of Minnesota’s Timber Producers Association. We are greatly appreciative of Regent McMillan’s visit and to Mr. Brandt for facilitating the connection.
