NAU’s iconic Lumberjack statue gets a lift from a crane operator as he is placed at his new home at the tip of the new dining expansion adjacent to the Fieldhouse.

Sculptor Charles Bonney’s 8-foot bronze has resided in front of the NAU Bookstore since 1968, and was moved primarily because of the future transportation spine planned through that area and other construction.

Welders put the finishing touches on Louie after a two-hour move.
