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.


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