Advisory Board

Our broad-based SFRES advisory board represents the full range of forestry and environmental resources issues that affect education, industry, recreation, conservation, and sustainability. Members are an excellent source for continuously improving curricula, resources like the Ford Center and our research forests, and taking action on powerful initiatives, from biomaterials to nontraditional courses.
