The College of Forestry and Conservation is preparing for the 95th annual Foresters’ Ball on Feb. 3 and 4, 2012, in the Adams Center on the UM campus. The Adams Center is converted into a turn-of-the-century logging town complete with a saloon, general store, jail, chapel, chow hall, and passion pits. The town takes a week to build, two days to enjoy and less than 24 hours to tear down. All proceeds from the dance are given as scholarships to students who contribute 80 hours or more helping plan, build, coordinate, and dismantle the logging town-themed event. The Ball is one of the longest running events on campus and involves both current students, alumni, and members of the community in planning and construction and donation of materials.
