Last summer, Fordham broke ground on the Calder Center’s log cabin facility, a 3,800-square-foot building that will house 12 graduate research students when completed later this year.
The cabin, pictured above, is well on its way to completion. It is constructed of solid Pennsylvania pine logs in a rustic Adirondack style, designed to blend with the surrounding wooded area and the historic turn-of-the-century cabin already on site.
The new cabin will occupy two of the 113 forested acres used for ecological research and environmental education. It will play a critical role in helping increase the quality and quantity of research that can be conducted at the Center, according to John Wehr, Ph.D., director of the Calder Center.
