Yale Forest Forum Lunch Speaker Series

The YFF Leadership Seminar Series is a series of informal talks by people working in some aspect of forestry or forest-related enterprise, on the scale from the local (indeed sometimes the molecular) to the global, coming from NGOs, industry, government, academia, and any other profession that touches on forests, trees and the history of their interaction with humans.

With occasional exceptions, talks take place Thursdays at noon, in Marsh Rotunda, 360 Prospect St.  You bring questions, we provide food and beverages.

RSVPs are not required.  However, latecomers may find the food is gone.

For more information on this semester's Speaker's series, including speaker information and talk titles, please click here.

The Global Institute offers week-long courses that bring the latest thinking on sustainable forestry management to working professionals.

The Executive Education in Forestry Course

March 22 - 27, 2015

An intensive one-week course for professionals from around the world, whose work requires understanding the environment.

“’Out of the box’ type of stimulating lectures in an atmosphere that inspired active participation among the students.”
Annika Hall, Investment Advisor

"I really enjoyed the Executive Education in Forestry course. In fact, it was one of the highlights of my federal career. For a professional that deals with forestry issues but lacks a degree in forestry or a science background, the Executive Education in Forestry was the most efficient means to gain that knowledge base."
Lincoln Bramwell, Chief Historian for USDA Forest Service
