On 13 June, I was in Washington, DC along my NIFA co-authors (see citation below) to present our final report on the McIntire-Stennis Cooperative Forest Research Program to the Forest Research Advisory Council. McIntire-Stennis plays a critical role in forestry research and graduate education across the country and supports programs at land grant universities and other public universities with forestry programs (for more on these universities, see the National Association of University Forest Resources Programs).
