Women in the Woods

The goal of Women in the Woods is to bring together College of Forestry faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and professionals in forest-related fields from small businesses, industry, government agencies, non-profit organizations, etc. for networking,  information, resources, and mentorship.    

We meet for a luncheon once per term (4 times per year) and invite speakers to present information, resources, etc. on a variety of topics of interest to the members of the network. Our 2016-17 luncheons are generally scheduled from 12:00-1:30 p.m. dates and locations are TBA at this time.

We're interested in knowing about members' interest in conference participation and topic areas. Please take a few minutes to complete our short survey.

We are excited to announce the Women in the Woods Mentorship Program!  We've joined with Women Owning Woodlands and the Master Woodland Managers Program, among other businesses and agencies, to offer our members the opportunity to expand upon existing knowledge and networks, gain new skills, and meet regularly with a working professional through our mentorship program.
