Forestry Through The Looking Glass: A Prism of Possibilities

Granite State Division Society of American Foresters has the distinction of hosting the 2023 NESAF Annual Meeting. Foresters, natural resource professionals, and students from all over the northeast will gather to connect, develop professionally, and learn from each other.

The Year of the Nor’Easter

Thanks everyone for your patience while we figured out how to switch to a hybrid meeting.  UNH Extension did the heavy lifting and pulled it off fairly smoothly thanks to a lot of running around Monday evening.  Overall the meeting was still well-attended with around 250 people Tuesday and 340 Wednesday.  

CEUs – many of you are asking about CEUs for joining the Zoom meetings. Those CEUs have been submitted to SAF and information was sent to registrants on 5/2. 

Recordings – An e-mail was sent out to all registrants on 5/2 with access information to the available recordings.  Unfortunately, not every session was able to be recorded.  Most are available to registrants.
