50th anniversary celebration
Northern Arizona University’s School of Forestry was initiated in the Fall of 1958, with the hiring of its first faculty member and its founding dean— Dr. Charles O. Minor. Six students enrolled in the forestry program that first semester. From those humble beginnings, the School of Forestry has evolved into what it is today, which is a program that is nationally renowned for its unique approach to undergraduate education, for the strength and quality of its graduate education, for its highly productive research endeavors, and, increasingly, for its innovative outreach and environmental education programs.
We celebrated the 50-year history of the school in a number of ways, beginning in April 2008 and ending in May 2009.
