Beginning Summer 2013, the MSU Department of Forestry will offer two online course options: Michigan’s Forests (FOR 101) and Introduction to Forestry (FOR 202). Bringing these two courses online will allow students to complete courses at their own pace. Anyone can enroll in these courses. MSU students enroll as they would enroll for a traditional course. Online courses can be found in the Schedule of Courses by clicking the “Online courses” icon under Location. If you are not an MSU student and would like to take one of these courses, you should apply to the university as a Lifelong Education student.

For Michigan State University (MSU) student Ryan Hauser-Jeryc, playing host to the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series second lumberjack competition of the 2013 season means visiting the historical roots of the sport.
“Since the late 1800s, my family has been in the lumber business, so it’s cool to be able to fell a tree just like my great-grandfather did,” said Hauser, a senior from Saline, Mich.

A self-proclaimed “adventure seeker,” Lee Mueller was 17 when he took a five-day canoe voyage with some friends to explore the river that ran through their hometown. It was an excursion that would later help guide Mueller down the right career path.
“We had been trying to find a place to camp for one night and came across this organization — funny enough at the University of Michigan — known as Les Voyageurs,” he said. “It was founded in 1907 by a couple of forestry majors. It was destined to be a society — not a fraternity — of members who had a love for the outdoors and for nature, and who respected nature. They had a cabin on the Huron River where they allowed us to stay.”
