Ways of the Woods Exhibit For Sale 

Ways of the Woods: People and the Land in the Northern Forest is the Center’s mobile forest heritage museum. The exhibition combines multi-media displays with educational kiosks, artifacts and children’s activities to help people explore the ever-changing relationships between people and land across the Northern Forest.
