Welcome to the home of the Iowa State Foresters!


The Forestry Club at Iowa State University provides students with an opportunity to participate in forestry related activities. Students involved in the club, within the Natural Resource Ecology and Management Department, put forth a lot of time and energy in to all of the projects and events that they sponsor. If you'd like to be a part of our organization, we meet in 202 Science II on alternating Tuesdays at 6:15pm.
