Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies Marks 100th Anniversary with Centennial Reunion

Hundreds of alumnae from around the globe will converge on Yale University Oct. 5-8 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES).

F&ES is the oldest, continuous forestry school in the country. Founded in 1900 at a time when terms like land management and forestry were not part of the American lexicon, F&ES was a pioneer. Throughout its history, the school has maintained its pioneering spirit and today includes programs such as:

* Coastal and Watershed Systems
* Conservation of Biological Diversity
* Ecosystem Science and Management
* Environmental Policy & Management
* Industrial Environmental Management
* Management of Forest Ecosystems
* Social Ecology and Community Development

The Centennial Reunion includes a full agenda of events designed to explore the best of the past and the present of F&ES. This includes a day trip to Grey Towers in Milford, Pa., the site of the Yale Forest School Camp between 1901 - 1926; a concert by singer/song writer Tom Rush at Battel Chapel; an oyster boat tour of New Haven Harbor, and a lecture on “Forests and Globalization: A Business Perspective” by Stephan Schmidheiny, founder of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
