They are decorated with snowshoes, buckskins, deer skulls and fishing poles. Out in the tall grass he maneuvers slowly around wooden beehives. Back in the dark, cool woods he grows patch of Shitaki mushrooms.

Education at UW-La Crosse helped Hammer see how his love of nature could become a big part of his career path.
