A Conversation with Dana Collins of the Canadian Institute of Forestry by Andrea Watts
During the House of Society Delegates meeting that preceded the SAF National Convention in October, one of the presenters was Dana Collins, executive director of the Canadian Institute of Forestry (CIF). CIF’s mission is to “serve as the voice of forest practitioners representing foresters, forest technologists and technicians, ecologists, biologists, educators and many others with a professional interest in forestry.” I caught up with Collins, who happens to be the youngest executive director and second woman executive director in CIF’s history, to learn more about CIF and its new initiatives. What follows is our conversation, edited for length and clarity.
