Sam’s Education

There are some folks out there asking questions about my education – I strive to be fully transparent, so here is the information for you all:

I earned my Associate’s Degree from the New York State Ranger School. The school has undergone numerous organizational changes over the years, and has been associated with both Syracuse University and the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Environmental Science and Forestry where it is currently based. You can read about the history of the school here.

I am proud of my technical degree in forestry and am thankful for the quality education I received. It gave me the jump start I needed to begin my career in the forests of Oregon over 40 years ago. And I welcome any other questions folks might have.
