At last November’s Raptor Research Foundation meeting in Colorado, Nico Arcilla ran into Libby Mojica. The two overlapped briefly during their time at Warnell—they recall meeting during an Audubon Christmas Bird Count—but went their professional ways.

The value of forested land isn’t just in its timber—it’s also in its legacy. While generations of foresters have skewed male, times are changing; women are buying, inheriting and managing more land than their ancestors.

And Danielle Atkins is here to shepherd them through the process.

Rusty Cobb (BSFR ’01, MS ’06): Supplying wood during a pandemic

When Rusty Cobb was considering what he wanted to study in college, a family friend who worked in forestry helped to point him to his eventual career path. 

“I’m happiest outdoors, in the woods, so making a career out of something I love was an easy decision,” says Cobb, a timber marketing manager for Rayonier’s Coastal Resource Unit based in Yulee, Florida. He’s responsible for identifying, negotiating, and delivering timber on 166,000 acres in southeast Georgia and northeast Florida.

The morning’s air felt thick. It wasn’t ideal.

As the students gathered into the wood-paneled classroom at the Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway, Mark Melvin bit his lip. The plans that day called for their first hands-on prescribed burn, at a pie-shaped piece of land near Ichauway’s skeet range. Conditions weren’t terrible, but they weren’t great.

Melvin, prescribed fire management specialist at the Jones Center who is instrumental in teaching an annual spring break course in prescribed burning, remained hopeful. More or less.

Red wolves are standing at a crossroads.

To the east lies a successful project to bring the endangered animals back to their historic range—now at a standstill. To the west lies a potential population that has flown under the radar until recently, with locals and wildlife researchers joining forces to learn more about them.

And Joey Hinton (PHD ’14) is right in the middle, ready for the journey.

The view out Jared Flowers’ office window has changed a bit in the past year.

Flowers (BSFR ’04) is marine biologist supervisor for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Coastal Resources Division. Last August, he could see boats drifting by as they headed out of Oglethorpe Bay and Brunswick’s port. But today, the view is dominated by barges, cranes and a 665-foot cargo ship lying on its side.
