The SAF Forestry Club is designed to help students learn more about their future careers while having fun and socializing with people of similar interests. Pre-professional, professional, and graduate students attend bi-weekly meetings to listen to speakers from a variety of forestry professions. Refreshments, food, and chances to meet other students are provided. The Club is involved in hosting a variety of School activities, FFA Forestry Field Days, and participating in the intercollegiate ASFC Conclave event. Conclave is a competition among 15 colleges and universities with forestry programs across the Southeast. Students compete in a variety of physical and technical events, including log birling, log chopping, crosscut saw, dendrology, and timber volume estimation. The Forestry Club is an informative, yet relaxed, way to find out about issues and opportunities in forest resources. Meetings are announced through e-mail and bulletin board messages.
