Why Extension?

What is your current role as part of the extension team?

As a Purdue forester I manage several of our properties in southern Indiana including: Cupps Chapel Forest, Davis Purdue Ag Center, Feldun Purdue Ag Center, Finley memorial Forest, Gladden Memorial Woodland, Miller Woodlands, Nelson-Stokes Property, Northeast Purdue Ag Center, Pinney Purdue Ag Center, Southeastern Indiana Purdue Ag Center, Southern Indiana Purdue Ag Center, and Stephens Forest.

Leading workshops and training sessions to aid in chain saw safety, invasive plant species control, best forest management practices and wildlife conservation with students and outdoor enthusiasts is just one of the aspects of this position I enjoy.
