We make a bridge

The University of Minnesota’s Cloquet Forestry Center, which has been a focal point for forestry research at the University for more than a century, is located near the Fond du Lac Ojibwe Reservation in northern Minnesota. The two communities often share educational and cultural resources, and are developing a plan to facilitate those connections.

In early December, landscape architecture professor John Koepke spoke with WTIP North Shore Community Radio about the class he will lead in spring 2016 that aims to design a bridge and trail that will literally and figuratively help connect the two communities. The project is funded by an IonE Mini Grant.

IonE’s Mini Grant program provides seed funding to help spur new interdisciplinary collaborations at the University of Minnesota.
