You can explore the Wonders of Wood with the U.S. Forest Service and Michigan Tech University

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Sunday, July 30, is the last day to explore the Wonders of Wood with the U.S. Forest Service and Michigan Tech University as they share the surprising and innovative ways wood products affect our daily lives.

Skyscrapers, drones, electronics and even ice cream are all made with renewable and sustainable wood products. Presentations will include "hands on" wood products and display materials highlighting the little-known and extraordinary value of wood.

Presentations will be led by Bob Ross, Project Leader for the Forest Service's Forest Products Laboratory, and Mark Rudnicki, Director of the Michigan Biomaterials Initiative at Michigan Tech University. 

The fun will get underway at 10:30 a.m. at the Detroit Maker Faire, 20900 Oakwood Blvd, Dearborn.

The U.S. Forest Service manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world. Learn more by visiting https://www.fs.fed.us/
