Today I celebrate two years with AFF, a top-rated forest conservation nonprofit and a very special place to work.
Here are my top three favorite AFF memories culled from the last 730 days:
- Nearly stepping on this rattler at the National Tree Farmer Convention in New Mexico.
- Exploring Aldo Leopold's family shack with AFF's conservation team in Wisconsin.
- Jumping for joy with the AFF staff in Maryland.
