A Peek at Calder Cabin-in-Progress

Last summer, ground was broken on Fordham’s Calder Center log cabin facility, a 3,800-square-foot facility that will house 12 graduate research students when completed later this year.

Here are some spring photos of the cabin well on its way to completion. It is constructed of solid Pennsylvania pine logs in a rustic Adirondack style, designed to blend with the surrounding wooded area and the historic turn-of-the-century cabin already on site (see architectural rendering by Kouzmanoff Bainton below).

The new cabin will occupy two of the 113 forested acres used for ecological research and environmental education. It will play a critical role in helping increase the quality and quantity of research that can be conducted at the Center, according to Calder Director John Wehr, Ph.D.

A thank you to Dr. Wehr for providing the photos.
