New County Extension Educator of Forest Resources

April 30, 2008

After an extensive nationwide search, Andy Fast is UNH Cooperative Extension's new Belknap County Extension educator, forest resources.

Fast's diverse background has been focused on forests, most recently as the reservation stewardship specialist at the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests where he developed and implemented land stewardship educational programs for a growing group of volunteers.

Fast has spent much of his non-work time volunteering on his town conservation commission, developing a town forest management plan and working on a prescribed burn crew. Previously, he worked as a U.S. Forest Service forestry technician in Alaska and a natural resource crew supervisor in California. He also has connections to UNH, where he received his M.S. degree in natural resources, studying northern forest wind disturbance and coarse woody debris under associate professor Mark Ducey.
