Forestry: It's in Our DNA

The theme, "Forestry: It's in Our DNA," references both the proud legacy of forestry and the ongoing challenges and opportunities that foresters and natural resources professionals face. Forestry and what it means to be a forester is multi-faceted with many backgrounds, disciplines, and experiences shaping our profession's past, present, and future. SAF2023 will bring together novel science and on-the-ground management techniques, while focusing on how to better communicate our passion to the public, and building a community that can tackle impacts from a changing climate.

Check back later this month for more details about the convention themes, location, sponsor and exhibitor opportunities, and call for proposal process. 


SAF Convention events will be held at the SAFE Credit Union Convention Center (1401 K St, Sacramento, CA 95814).
