Inland Empire 2012 SAF Field Forester Award
Jared Richardson, Northwest Management, Inc. was awarded the Inland Empire 2012 SAF Field Forester Award. The purpose of this Award is to recognize foresters who have dedicated their professional careers to the application of forestry on the ground using sound, scientific methods and adaptive management strategies. Practitioners often operate in nearly complete anonymity, yet their actions are one of the most important and visible contributions to the viability and understanding of the forestry profession. It is important to recognize those who perform the art and science of forestry each and every day. Congratulations Jared!
IFPC-Annual Sustainable Forestry Tour for Teachers and Counselors June 24-28, 2013
Through the Sustainable Forestry Tour teachers and school counselors explore the social, economic and ecological aspects of sustainable forestry. Once the participant arrives at the tour, s/he is treated as a VIP! They are immersed in sustainable forestry issues with valuable information, concepts and activities to bring back to school. Our goal is to have participants visit private, state and federal forests; tour wood and paper mills and a seedling nursery; see an active timber harvesting operation; walk in managed forest stands of differing ages; and experience proven classroom activities to address tour topics with their students. They will learn directly from the natural resource professionals who care for our forests, and those who provide products we all use every day. Participants leave with abundant information and resources to explore sustainable forestry and related careers with their students.Northwest Management, Inc. is proud to be one of the many annual sponsors of this Tour!
