Look Who’s Outstanding!

A sixty-year institution at CSU is recognized

The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at CSU. It maintains 16 districts and three field offices throughout Colorado, with a headquarters located on the CSU Foothills Campus in Fort Collins.

The CSFS provides support for the care of our natural environment through technical assistance, information and outreach. It was established in 1955, back in the days when Colorado State University was known as the Colorado State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts.  Its stated goal was to “provide timely, relevant forestry information and education to Colorado citizens.”

Today, the CSFS’s mission is to achieve stewardship of Colorado’s diverse forest environments for the benefit of present and future generations. They accomplish this through forest management, outreach, and education.

March 2015 unit recognition

On March 31, the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) was recognized by the Colorado State University Employee Appreciation Board for its dedication to the citizens of the state of Colorado.

The appreciation event was held at the CSFS annual meeting in Pueblo, Colo. The 90 staff members attending were treated to CSU cookies as well as a drawing for CSU gift items as a way of saying thank you for all it does.

Recognition for hard work, community spirit

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board, originally formed in 1968, recognizes employees for their hard work and promotes community spirit among CSU faculty and staff through events such as breakfasts or luncheons. Each month, the Board hosts a prize drawing for all faculty and staff who submit an entry form, including a coveted reserved parking space for a full month.

The board meets monthly during the academic year to discuss and plan employee recognition events, as well as to help promote university events. One of the main objectives of the board is the monthly recognition of a group, entity or college.
