USFWC, where were you at 14 years ago when I graduated and was looking for that type of job. I have a forestry and wildlife degree. Ah it worked out, I get to spend most of the winter setting the woods on fire (prescribe burns) and then trying to put other fires out (wild fires). Then my summers I get to go chace fires out west. I work for the state of Georgia as a wildland firefighter.

You might want to contact/advertise this opening atthe schol of forestry atAbraham Baldwin Agriculture College (ABAC)in Tifton Ga. They have a very good wildlife and forestry program. These are 2 year degrees.

I believe I was learning to drive about that time!

Thanks for the referral on ABAC, it is very much appreciated! The SAF has a list of 'accredited' schools, but that doesn't include all forestry schools...especially the 2-year programs. I'll check it out. Thanks again!

I think you'll really like UGA. I have met several of the students at the Conclaves the past couple of years and they have all been very nice and personable. They usually do really well in the competition too. Keep us in mind when you start looking for a job. You may check in with us for internships from time to time as well. I had several this past summer that didn't get filled.

Are you serious? Yes, we use them to measure slope, and to measure tree height...we learned that first year, first semester!

I was kind of kidding, kind of not too...you would be surprised how many people graduate with a degree in forestry that have no practical knowledge of it. Glad to see you aren't one of them!

When are you scheduled to graduate?
