SAF is now accepting applications for the 2017 Gregory Award. The award brings two outstanding students or young professionals from outside of the US and Canada to the SAF Convention to have meaningful engagement with SAF and forestry and natural resources professionals from across the nation. The deadline to apply is May 8, 2017.
The Gregory Award commemorates the legacy of G. Robinson (Bob) Gregory, a pioneer in forest economics and resource development, who always thought of himself as a forester. Bob had a special interest in helping low-income countries develop their forest resources in thoughtful ways for the good of society. With his wife, Ann, Bob traveled much of the world consulting for the Ford Foundation, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, and host countries on matters related to forest development. Ann’s intuition and social awareness of cultural attributes of each country were integral to Bob’s success in partnering with individuals, governments, and companies in various cultures and countries.
