Final Four Floor
Did you have your bracket busted during this year's Final Four basketball tournament? If you looked closely, you might have noticed the beautifully crafted wood flooring under the players' feet. The maple for the courts came from the Nature Conservancy’s Two Hearted River Forest Reserve in Newbury Michigan – our most recently designated Forest Stewards Guild Model Forest, managed by our member Jon Fosgitt of Compass Land Consulting.
