Forestry Crew Members Receive Recognition

This year two of our graduating seniors received recognition for their work on the Forestry Crew.

Julie Larsen won a Work Award for her role as a leader on the crew. Julie has been an indispensable member of the Forestry Crew, a Captain of the Timbersports Team, Chair of the Society of American Foresters Student Chapter, led the crew on multiple service projects, and did the majority of the work in creating this blog.

Additionally,  Forestry Crew member Nick Biemiller won a Service Award for his leadership on a project the Forestry Crew took part in on Little Hump Mountain in the Highlands of Roan. This project was in collaboration with The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy, and helped establish habitat for the Golden-Winged Warbler.
