As the national SAF convention approaches (Oct. 27-31 in Albuquerque, NM), the ESF quiz bowl team is studying hard for this year's competition. As a warm up, they will be taking on a faculty team this Thursday, October, 21 in 314 Bray. Come root them on and enjoy some free pizza!
On the horizon, we are planning a trip to the Frost Valley Model Forest in the Catskills on Saturday, November 13th. The model forest is located in the NYC watershed and is used for both research and demonstration. Attendees will see properly installed BMPs and experience various silviculture treatments on a northern hardwood forest. For those interested in attending, email Matt Kelly (firstname.lastname@example.org) before November 5 to reserve a spot in the van (space is limited).
Finally, we'd like to see some more faces at the meetings. If you haven't joined us in a while we encourage you to participate in upcoming events and meetings. We have a lot of great ideas for events and could use some help to pull them off. Thanks!

The group held its first meeting of the year on September 16th. Encouraged by high student turnout and the strong commitment shown by faculty, the group has decided to send a team to Alberquerque next month to attend the SAF National Convention Albuquerque and compete in the annual Quiz Bowl. The ESF team will be up against teams representing other forestry schools from all over the nation. We have high hopes for the team and wish them the best of luck!
