Purdue Alumni Magazine Goes Into the Woods with FNR Foresters

Purdue's Department of Forestry and Natural Resources manages approximately 20 woodland properties throughout Indiana. The Purdue Alumnus magazine followed foresters into the woods to discover the natural beauty of those areas, learn about some of the research that goes on there, and gain a deeper appreciation of forest management and its role in helping woods grow and thrive.

Check out some of the properties and get to the know the people who manage them, forester Don Carlson and farm manager Brian Beheler, in the feature story "Into the Woods" by Kat Braz, with photos by Charles Jischke.

The article features Martell Forest, the Davis Purdue Agricultural Center, the Southeastern Purdue Agricultural Center, Darlington Woods, Nelson-Stokes-Lewman Woodland, Finley Memorial Woods and Stephens Forest.
