Upcoming Events


Meeting Minutes



-  A proposal was passed to refund half the cost of the plane tickets.

Inland Empire Conference

International Forestry Speakers

-  On Thursday, Nov. 7th at 6 pm in CNR 10, two visitors from Spain will discuss afforestation efforts in the Mediterranean region.


Graduation Rings

-  Rings are free for SAF members who are graduating.

-  People who want one and are graduating this semester need to figure out their ring size.

            -  The bookstore or a local jeweler might be able to do that.


Wreath Making

-  Material collection is weather-dependent but is tentatively planned for Dec. 6th.

-  Cones could be collected from the school forest (maybe on Saturday, Dec. 9th).


Meeting Location

-  There was an idea to hold meetings in the CNR LLC living room to make it easier for residents to be involved.

-  I’ll find out if that will work.


Student Member of the Year

-  The online poll had few responses and was not anonymous, so the club voted during the meeting with whoever was present.

-  Josh Larsen was voted as student of the year.
