13th Annual OSAF Golf Tournament Results and Pictures

Sponsor Banner

On July 19th, a group of 64 foresters came out of the forest and spent the day on the Trysting Tree golf course for the 13th Annual OSAF Golf Tournament.  It was a fantastic day to support the OSAF Foundation and there were even rumors of some good golf shots!  A big thank you to our gold sponsor Starker Forests as well as all the other sponsors to make the event a success!      

 

National Convention - Louisville, Kentucky October 30 - November 3.

National Convention 2019

Louisville is known for bourbon, bluegrass, the Kentucky Derby, baseball bats, and now, as the destination for this year’s SAF National Convention. You won’t want to miss this exciting event, to be held October 30-November 3 at the Louisville Convention Center, featuring over 200 speakers, 80 exhibitors, 20 CFE credit hours, and endless networking opportunities. Approximately 1,300 foresters attend from around the country, and among those in attendance are many under-30 young professionals representing the future of our profession.

   What can you expect from this year’s convention? Under the theme of “Goods from the Woods” there will be educational sessions spanning the full range of topics in natural resource management from silviculture, economics, urban forestry, biometrics, and more. Wednesday kicks off with a great slate of tours to showcase forestry in Kentucky, as well as more than a dozen workshops teaching the latest in forest technology and more. On Halloween, be sure to join the night hike in Jefferson Memorial Forest (we’ll provide the flashlights, you provide the costumes!) and on Sunday visit the renowned Mammoth Cave.

 

Here is where to register and you will find more information too.
