ElkhartWood Showcase at the Elkhart Environmental Center

The 3rd annual ElkhartWood Showcase will be at the Elkhart Environmental Center (EEC) for two weeks, April 17 through April 29. The Showcase will feature artistry and talent from local sawyers and woodworkers, including furniture, art, pens and other items made from reclaimed wood. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind item, designed to reflect the unique beauty and characteristics of the tree from which it was made. ElkhartWood is a partnership between the Forestry Division, the EEC, and a network of local sawyers and woodworkers. Through the program, logs from city trees are purchased for milling and woodworking. The log sales fund community tree planting projects each fall. For more information, call (574) 293-5070. The EEC is at 1717 East Lusher Avenue in Elkhart.
