WELCOME TO THE SOCIETY OF AMERICAN FORESTERS
 

The Society of American Foresters (SAF) is one of the largest student organizations at UW-Stevens Point and one of the most active. We are aimed at getting undergraduates valuable experience.  Membership in our society gives access to professionals and it's a lot of fun! Join us at our meetings and our upcoming events.


 

​Meetings will resume starting Fall Semester, Thursdays at 5:00PM in TNR 170.

Currently our members are actively participating in many different programs provided by the society, such as tours of logging and silviculture operations, local community outreach and education, attending professional conferences, and skill workshops to enhance their abilities as foresters and to prepare for the Basic Skills Exam and other classroom work.

 Menominee Tour Fall '13

The fall semester Menominee Tour was an unforgettable experience for all of those who attended. An SAF  officer described this tour as the best he had attended thus far. The Menominee Indian Reservation has been managing their forests for hundreds of years, nonetheless, having an opportunity to walk on land that is otherwise restricted to the  public was truly something amazing. Huge thanks to all those who attended!
