The Show Must Go On!!!

Despite campus being officially closed due to snow last Friday, Dr. Matthew Langholtz of BioResource Management Inc. out of Gainesville, Florida presented an introductory seminar on forest biomass. While the audience only included forestry instructor Jim Hamilton and a cameraman, the hour-long seminar was a resounding success. As part of the NC Bionetwork Grant "North Carolina Community College Forest Biotechnology Teaching Consortium", the seminar was recorded and will be made into a DVD and web-ready seminar for use as a shareable learning resource for Haywood's Forestry program and other forestry programs within the NC Community College system. Although he didn't receive a lot of questions from the audience, Dr. Langholtz enjoyed his visit to HCC!
