International Day of Forests Open House Event – Mar 21, 2014


Our friends in the Faculty of Forestry will celebrate next Friday, the International Day of Forests (March 21) with an open house event – a movie marathon, tree planting, etc. All students, staff, faculty members, researchers and anyone interested in forests is invited to join, if your schedule allows!

The highlight of the event – the documentary “MusicWood” (screening at 11:30 AM) – we’ve been promised some amazing acoustic guitar performances.
