Hello Iowans! My name is Billy Beck - your new Forestry Specialist with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. I hail from the Midwest, having earned my Bachelor’s degree in Forestry from Michigan State University, my Master’s degree in Forest Hydrology from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and my Ph.D. in Environmental Science (water quality emphasis) from Iowa State. I am honored to serve the people, forests, and water resources of “the land between the rivers” in my new role. I am also elated, as this position offers the opportunity to pursue my two passions – forestry and water quality! Feel free to follow our efforts on the ISU Extension Forestry webpage, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
