Upcoming Events

Sierra Cascade Logging Conference (SCLC) Alumni Breakfast

Please join your fellow Humboldt State Forestry Alumni at the annual Sierra Cascade Logging Conference (SCLC) Alumni Breakfast. It will once again be held at Marie Callender’s (1987 Hilltop Drive, Redding) on Friday, February 6th starting at 7:00 am. A breakfast buffet is available for $15, though we suggest alumni contribute an extra $5 to cover meal costs for the current students in attendance.

This is a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new friends. There will be an update on recent Alumni and Department activities. You will also have the opportunity to pick up some free HSU schwag in the raffle. You are encouraged to stick around afterwards to participate in the SCLC events and cheer on the HSU Logging Sports Team as they compete against other colleges in the conclave competition. A full schedule of SCLC activities can be found at: We look forward to seeing you there.

For more information on the Breakfast, please contact:

HSU Forestry Alumni Weekend

The Forestry Alumni Weekend has changed from an annual spring event to a fall event that is held in conjunction with HSU Homecoming Week in the fall. The event is a great opportunity for HSU Forestry Alumni to get together in the good ol' redwood stomping grounds and celebrate HSU Forestry traditions, reminisce, meet with old friends, and see how the department is doing today.

Support the Forestry Alumni Scholarship Endowment

The Forestry Alumni Scholarship Endowment helps deserving undergraduates pursue their studies to earn a degree in Forestry. The scholarship helps to pay their fees and tuition, currently $7,130 for the academic year. Eligible students are those with a minimum 2.75 GPA, at least a Junior class standing, and who are active in forestry-related activities, such as the Society of American Foresters, logging sports, Forestry Club, Student Association of Fire Ecology, and others. 1959 forestry alumnus, Robert “Bob” Archibald of Glendale, Arizona, from the first class of four-year graduates, will match alumni donations to the endowment up to $1,000 per year. Bob is making this generous challenge to encourage your donations. Please consider your own generous donation, especially in this Centennial Year of Humboldt State University.
