YSE students visit a post-burn forest in North Carolina

YSE Students Travel Far and Wide for Spring Field Research

In March, students fanned out across the U.S. and abroad to conduct field research as part of YSE’s annual spring field trips. In Wyoming, students met with Ucross High Plains Stewardship Initiative project partner, The Nature Conservancy Wyoming, visiting a logging site in Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest and the Saratoga Forest Management mill in Saratoga to study adaptive management and public forest use. As part of YSE’s Southern Forestry field trip, which dates to 1907,  students  explored North Carolina's  pine and lowland forests to learn about longleaf pine ecology and restoration and the sustainable production of wood products. Other students traveled to Bears Ears National Monument in Utah and internationally to Costa Rica, Panama, Portugal, and Ecuador — all in pursuit of achieving a more equitable, more sustainable future!
