Ten young leaders in forestry brought thought-provoking dialogue to the World Forestry Center in late October.The fourth annual Emerging Voices in Forestry featured dynamic conversations on the predictability of wildfire, the challenges and opportunities for the women fighting those fires, and the actions required to evolve forestry for the future.

“These conversations were envisioned as a way to feature new voices in forestry,” said World Forestry Center Senior Fellow, Rick Zenn. “We wanted to highlight the work being done by this next generation.”


Emerging Voices is part of The Hagenstein Lectures, a public initiative led by the World Forestry Center and the Society of American Foresters to honor the legacy of professional forester William D. Hagenstein.
