There is a new District 3 (California and Hawaii) representative on the SAF Student Executive Committee. A hearty welcome from California SAF!
My name is Emily Thyroff, I am a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, I currently live and work in South Kona on Hawaiʻi Island on the slopes of Maunaloa. I became interested in forestry during my undergraduate studies when I worked with a forest ecologist and learned about restoration work. Through a few jobs and graduate studies I have continued working in forest restoration and regeneration. Fun fact: I have spent time in all of SAF’s districts and have done forestry work in six of SAF’s districts (6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 3).
