Ames Forester


The student chapter of the Society of American Foresters (SAF) at Iowa State University had another busy year. The chapter was able to attend the state meeting last fall in the Amana Colonies which was a spin-off of the Seventh American Forest Congress. The meeting had SAF members from the states of Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa. Former National President Robert Bosworth, and current Vice-President Bill Banzhaf also attended and shared their thoughts on the results of the Congress and where SAF needs to go from there. The student chapter also attended the spring meeting in Marshalltown with the Iowa's Wildlife Society. Both meetings allowed the students to interact with forestry professionals from around the state and get a feeling for what types of careers are possible.
