The steel and glass structure of the MSU Broad Art Museum stretches towards the sky, just as the museum continues to push boundaries and showcase contemporary art that reflects the world we live in. The MSU Broad Art Museum will soon celebrate its 10th anniversary with an event that both celebrates the occasion and raises funds for the museum’s new Open Storage Center. Photo by Derrick L.

MSU president Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D. is taking a road trip to round out the summer, visiting the Upper Peninsula and learning more about MSU's impact up north. Along with checking out Mackinac Island and trying pasties for the first time, the president toured the MSU Forestry Innovation Center in Escanaba, one of MSU’s three AgBioResearch stations in the UP. The team taught President Stanley about the diverse work that goes on at the center, from Christmas tree and maple syrup production to forest and wildlife management and logger training.

If a tree falls in the forest, MSU staff, faculty and students will be the first to know. This massive trunk belongs to half of the Baker Woodlot’s great tulip tree, which came down last year. Photo by Derrick L. Turner.
A silhouetted sign at the entrance to Baker Woodlot gives a clue to what can be found within — the woodlot is also home to Rajendra Neotropical Migrant Bird Sanctuary. Visitors to the sanctuary can attempt to spot robins, woodpeckers, chickadees and a variety of other local birds. Photo by Derrick L. Turner.
