We’d love to hear from you

Submit us your favorite stories about Robinson Forest, professors, summer camp, spring camp, etc. We will post them to the website for other forestry alumni to see. 

Let us know what you are up to. We want to share our Alumni in the News!

Several ways to get involved

There are several ways to get involved with the forestry program. If you have the opportunity to visit with high school students or potential forestry students about the forestry profession, we would be happy to provide you with current materials on our undergraduate forestry program. In addition to helping recruit future forestry professionals, you can help support our forestry students by providing internship opportunities, giving guest lectures, and reaching out to other alumni to help support our forestry program.
