It's time once again for Making the Rounds with Kevin LaRose!

Each Thursday morning at 3:00, Interlochen campus safety officer Kevin LaRose plays a musical instrument somewhere on our campus.

Where's Kevin, and what instrument is he playing?

Last week, Kevin played the bass guitar in the lobby of IPR (which made us all laugh heartily!).

Watch this week's video, below, and make your guess!

Send it in an e-mail to ipr@interlochen.org, and if you're right, we'll send you a CD.

Outdoors: Beech books

Feb 24, 2021

During summer, it is easy to overlook beech trees.

But this time of year, when leaves are gone from mature beech and almost all other deciduous trees, the tan leaves of young beech trees give us some much-appreciated winter color.

Interlochen campers tell me that the trunks of beech trees remind them of elephant legs.

The smooth grey bark is thin, but not particularly insulating.

Beech trees grow in the eastern United States but they peter out just west of Lake Michigan.
