WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue's Department of Forestry and Natural Resources will be breaking ground on a new wildlife facility this Spring.
The 4,700 square foot building will replace an outdated building in Purdue's Wildlife Area off of State Road 26 in West Lafayette.
The facility will offer researchers six rooms for experimenting and small animal research.
Jason Hoverman says the new building will make outreach programs for the community possible.
The new building was made possible by a 1 million dollar donation made by the estate of Roger and Sarah Voyles. Roger earned his Bachelor's degree in Forestry at Purdue in 1950.
