The Guild was at the national SAF conference in Albuquerque. There were many ways to gather with the Guild during the event. Thanks to all who joined the activity!

Exhibit Hall
Did you check out the Guild's booth and poster in the exhibit hall during the conference? The poster title was: Increasing wildfire awareness and reducing human-caused ignitions in northern New Mexico.

We invited Guild members, supporters, partners, and friends to join our free, Friday evening Guild networking reception. Expand your SAF conference experience and celebrate the great work by all who are dedicated to and focused on forest sustainability and resilience. A reception with appetizers was on offer and attendees could purchase dinner or drinks from the cash bar. A free registration helped us plan for food amounts.
