Ames Forester: Volume 64, Issue 1
Don't be chained to desk, machine or store counter. Many forestry men hunt mountain lions, wrestle bears, parachute from planes to help marrooned animals or save injured campers. Live the outdoor life you love. Sleep under pines, catch breakfast from icy streams. Feel and look like a million. Live a life of thrills and adventure. Become a Forester and get all this plus more.
Iowa State had eight student foresters representing her at the 1976 National Convention of the Society of American Foresters. Making the trip to New Orleans for the October 4-6 sessions were four Hartman-Montgomery Travel Award winners: Teresa McCoy, Keith Walton, Bob Meier, and Joel Tuhy. Four other students attended on their own: Mary Blenkush, Carla Derby, Dwight Lundquist, and Ray Dirksen.
Tuesday, the fifth of October, we went on an all-day bus trip during which we explored the world of Southern Forestry. Among other things, we toured a Loblolly Pine seed orchard, a tree-improvement center, and a harvesting operation with some fairly sophisticated machinery in use.
