Student Assistantship for Land One program (please distribute to Forestry and LFS networks)
(Approved for distribution in LFS by Dr. Chris Scaman.)
This is the advertisement for the approved studentship to help develop teaching materials in support of the Land One program. I was hoping you could send this to the appropriate person so that we could get this as widely advertised as possible to students in both Forestry and LFS.
