It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 75th Anniversary Celebration of the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University!
Thank you for visiting our website in observance of this important anniversary. We hope you’ll enjoy learning about the history of Auburn’s forestry and wildlife sciences programs within the interactive timeline and photo archive of the School’s significant milestones and achievements.
As you’ll discover, forestry first became a stand-alone program in what was then known as the School of Agriculture in 1946. Since that time, Auburn has produced thousands of well-qualified graduates, provided citizens with science-based solutions to improve their quality of life and developed solutions to some of society’s most complex natural resource challenges.
In honor of this occasion, the School has published Arthur L. Slotkin’s 75 Years of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University. Through personal interviews and in-depth research, Mr. Slotkin has created a detailed chronology that will take readers on a journey through time to discover how Auburn’s forestry and wildlife programs evolved to become the present-day School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences.
The School will commemorate its 75th anniversary from March 2021 through 2022. Throughout the year, we will invite our faculty, students, alumni, and friends to join us in celebrating the School’s rich history of teaching, research, and extension through a series of virtual and in-person *events, including:
In addition to this exciting calendar of events, we invite our alumni to share their Auburn experience by submitting stories, photos, and other memorabilia to our website that will be shared online with fellow alumni during the anniversary celebration year.
On behalf of the faculty and staff, we look forward to commemorating this milestone anniversary with you in honor of 75 years of forestry and wildlife Sciences at Auburn University!
