Recognizing the Veterans in Our Community

On this day, we want to thank all of the Veterans that served our country, along with their families.  Without your sacrifice, we would not have the freedoms we do today.  We are honored and lucky to have you as part of Washington’s forestry community. 

Washington State Society of American Foresters

Samantha Chang recognized as District 1 Field Forester

Each year the Society of American Foresters honors one member from each of the 11 SAF voting districts with the Presidential Field Forester Award for 2021. This award recognizes foresters who have dedicated their professional careers to the application of forestry using sound scientific methods and adaptive management strategies. 
This year, WSSAF member Samantha Chang was recognized for her achievements! Samantha is the chair of the North Puget Sound SAF chapter and previously served as secretary for WSSAF.
