Western Forestry Graduate Research Symposium
The 2017 symposium will be held Friday, April 21st!
What is WFGRS?
The annual Western Forestry Graduate Research Symposium (WFGRS), hosted by Oregon State University’s College of Forestry (CoF), showcases current graduate student research. The purpose of this symposium is to promote academic excellence by challenging students to present their work to and receive feedback from their academic and professional peers on their proposed and current research from a diverse audience, fostering student engagement, enthusiasm, and interdisciplinary collaboration. Topics stretch across the realm of forests including ecology, forest management, forest products, human uses, and interconnections between the two in forest settings. WFGRS works to communicate an array of research projects spanning all three departments of OSU’s CoF: Forest Ecosystems & Society, Forest Engineering, Resources & Management, and Wood Science & Engineering.
