DIAMOND SPRINGS — Retired Forest Service District Ranger and longtime Diamond Springs resident Bob Smart will be honored at the April 23 meeting of the Amador-El Dorado Forest Forum. The meeting is at Colina De Oro restaurant, at 694 Pleasant Valley Road in Diamond Springs. Bob’s friends, family, and former co-workers are encouraged to attend.

Come out for an evening of tribute to Bob Smart, who has made significant contributions to the Forest Forum, both as a member and as a past president. Bob received his Bachelor of Science in Forest Management and Master of Forestry from the University of Idaho, and worked for the U.S. Forest Service from 1960 to 1999, the last 22 years on the Eldorado National Forest. Bob is a Golden Member of the Society of American Foresters and is actively involved in the El Dorado County Planning Commission.

The Spring Honors Dinner is a relatively new tradition. Former honorees include Bob Harris, Ron Cunnington and Joe Flynn, all retired from the U.S. Forest Service, and Warren Carleton, forester and former mayor of Jackson.

Social Hour begins at 6 p.m., and dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. To RSVP, contact Diane Dealey Neill at dianedealeyneill@gmail.com or 530-417-1960 by Monday, April 21. Items can be ordered from the menu for $10 to $15 per person. Raffle tickets to support the Forest Forum may be purchased at the door.

The Amador-El Dorado Forest Forum is a group of forestry professionals, forest educators, and others interested in forestry practices and issues in the two-county area. The forum meets once a month in fall, winter, and spring months at various locations in the two-county area. The forum awards scholarships to local college students majoring in forestry and sponsors the California Forestry Challenge. For more information, visit aeforestforum.org.
