Classroom Collaborations to Save the Planet

A productive collaboration among Wilsonart, not-for-profits, an arts high school, foresters, artists-in-residence has started the process of transforming a pine plantation in northern Michigan. By creating a network of funders, students and artists, a 10-acre monoculture is gently being transformed into a biodiverse native forest, and students are making video about it! Student work will be showcased and the role of the collaborators discussed.
