Lecture Series:

The future is unknown; yet every day we make assumptions, guesses and decisions about forest management, education, policy and our personal lives that impact our lives down the road.  This leads us to ask, what will the forestry world look like in 30-40 years? The 2018 Starker Lecture Series will explore this and ask some of our current leading thinkers to consider what the economic, political, technological and ecological future might look like, and how we ought to prepare for decisions that could shape generations.
