Yale Forest Forum Lunch Schedule, Fall 2013

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.
