Surprise your budding scientist or nature enthusiast with a field guide written by MSU experts. “Michigan Snakes (E2000)” portrays Michigan’s 18 species of snakes with large color photos. Filled with useful information, it will even tell you how to treat a snakebite.
“Michigan Butterflies & Skippers (E2675)” includes every butterfly ever recorded in the state.
For the hunter or for the hunter’s cook, try “Michigan Venison (E0657).” If you’d like your resident cook to perfect his or her cooking skills, order the “Eating Right is Basic Recipe Set (CYFC021).” It’s a flip-up cookbook with very simple yet nutritious recipes.
A great coffee table book is “Pursuing What’s Best for the World: 150 years of Teaching, Research and Extension of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR400).” From the formation of Michigan Agricultural College to the development of Extension and AgBioResearch to the CANR’s linkage to other colleges in the university, the book covers the efforts, trials and accomplishments of the people who went before us.
For the avid gardener, I suggest combining several items in a gift bundle. “Growing Plants Indoors: An Introduction on How to Care for Common Indoor Plants (E3142),” “Planting Techniques: A Guide for Successful Plant Establishment (E3111)” and the Soil Test Kit Self-Mailer (E3154) make a great combination.
