OREGON STATE UNIVERSITY

Society of American Foresters, OSU Student Chapter

OSU was granted a charter by the Society of American Foresters (SAF) in the fall of 1980 to form a student chapter. Student members must be undergraduate or graduate students in programs closely related to forestry and natural resources. Both faculty and students are welcome.

The goals of the SAF Student Chapter are to promote professionalism in the field of forestry, encourage interaction between professional foresters and students, provide opportunities for taking part in active forest management projects, and help educate the public about forest resources and their management. In addition, the SAF Student Chapter strives to build fellowship among students and provide an opportunity to openly discuss and debate forestry issues.

SAF activities include a job fair, managing a Christmas tree farm, hosting guest speakers, participation in community natural resource education, and travel to State and National SAF Conventions.
