The SFA is a student based organization that has been in existence for more
than ten years. We are a politically neutral organization who have an
interest in exploring forestry related issues for the benefit of the
forestry students and staff. Through periodic symposia and a regular speaker
series we bring in people from industry, environmental organizations, parks,
government, delegates from other countries, graduate students, and anyone
else who has something of interest to offer to forestry students. Past
speakers have included people such as Jack Munroe, Dave Zirnhelt, Patrick
Moore, Vicky Husband, Tamara Stark among others.
