Ten Summers of Camp with The Ames Foresters
( 1924) Martin, C. ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

One of the most interesting and valuable quarters in tile Forestry course is the three months summers Camp held in some distant forest where the distant forester may learn what he is really striving towards and determine whether he is suited for the vocation which he expects to follow. It is interesting to trace the growth and development of the Ames summer camps which started in 1914.

Forestry Extension in Middle West
( 1924) Bode, Irwin ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

In the last issue of the Ames Forester, there appeared a discussion relative to Forestry Extension as applicable to the State of Iowa and presenting some of the difficulties and problems encountered in developing the work. Suffice to say here that the need for forestry in this part of the United States is as apparent now, if not more so, than it was a year ago, and the problems have changed but little. The following summary presents a survey of the situation as detailed before.

The Mississippi River Bottomlands
( 1924) Shimek, B. ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

A bill is now before Congress calling for an appropriation of $3,000,000 for the purpose of securing a wild-life reservation in the Upper Mississippi Valley. The contemplated reservation is to extend about 300 miles along the river from Rock Island, Illinois, to Wabasha, Minnesota. It would therefore include bottomland areas in four states, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

The Michigan Land Economic Survey
( 1924) Andrews, Horace ; Iowa State University Digital Repository

For two summers, 1922 and 1923, a peculiar form of so-called survey has been carried on in Michigan. Inventory of all natural resources and economic conditions describes this work better than the word “survey.” Its official title, however, is “The Michigan Land Economic Survey.” It is a new type of work for a commonwealth to carry on, and it is hoped b many that, if tis findings prove of value, similar or identical work will be done in other states having land problems like those of Michigan.
