Forester named fellow with nationwide society
Karen Bennett, UNH Cooperative Extension professor and forest resources specialist, is one of the newest fellows with the Society of American Foresters.
The society honors members with the title of fellow who have provided outstanding contributions to the society and to the forestry profession.
The society recognizes only 5 percent of its members with this honor.
In her current position, Bennett develops and delivers educational materials on natural resource topics for non-industrial private forest owners, natural resource professionals, youth, local decision-makers and general audiences, with a focus on professional development for foresters.
Bennett was the first female UNH Cooperative Extension forester. She has been a New Hampshire licensed forester since 1990 and a Society of American Foresters certified forester since 2002.
