“Our Open House and the Think Wood exhibit provide an excellent opportunity to learn about changing technologies in forestry” said Dr. Philip Tappe, Dean of the College of Forestry, Agriculture and Natural Resources. “Well managed, healthy forests provide a host of environmental and social benefits while simultaneously providing jobs and contributing significantly to the economy of Arkansas. Our college and faculty are committed to teaching those concepts and practices,” said Tappe. The Think Wood mobile exhibit debuted at the National Building Museum in late October. U.S. Representative from the Arkansas 4th District Bruce Westerman delivered the keynote address for the unveiling. Other nationwide stops for the Think Wood mobile unit include, The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitats in Chicago. A remodeling show and Expo in Louisville and the Residential Construction Show in Portland Oregon to be held in December.
