MTU Celebrates Ford Center Anniversary

In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Ford Motor Company’s gift of the village of Alberta to Michigan Tech University, a car show and a variety of programs will be presented this weekend as a part of Michigan Tech’s Alumni Weekend. The tours and programs will cover the history of the Ford Center and how Michigan Tech has used the Ford Center and the surrounding research forest over the past six decades and will include presentations by MTU students and faculty members performing research and management on Ford Center lands, as well as field trips to sites that are utilized in the School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science curriculum and School Dean Terry Sharik says the work being done at the Ford Center is wide-ranging and very important to MTU.

More information and a link to enter into the car show is available on the community calendar.
