Student Focus: HSU Forestry Club

Student Focus logoThe HSU Forestry Club is meant to bring students of the forestry program together in education, experience, friendship, and service. The club has many awesome programs and events, such as:

• Tutoring for forestry classes taught by past students and upperclassmen meant to cultivate the next generation of stewards of all things forestry.

HSU Forestry Club logo• Organizing, fundraising, and putting on the annual Humboldt State Forestry Logger Ball—a themed night of dancing, dress up, drinks, music, food, and raffles and prizes. The Logger Ball is held every year as a way for students to cut loose before finals as well as socialize and rub shoulders with our community and people in the forestry industry.

• Annual Christmas tree harvest and sale (see below). A group of dedicated forestry students head out to harvest Christmas trees and haul them back to Arcata for sale to our community. The proceeds help fund our club programs and gets students into the field, running chainsaws and thinning forests.

• Club bonfires, club parties, field trips, resume building workshops and a family within the Forestry department is what we strive for. It’s a great club with great people who are passionate about our field.
