About Us

Our Talent

Bill Cook and Georgia Peterson are foresters and educators with MSU Extension. They were somewhat reluctant to engage (and maybe a little clueless) in a project of this kind, but they are now giddy at the prospect of producing more videos! They are gratefully supported by various federal and state funds managed by MSU Extension and, did we mention, our sponsors!
