In 1992, Florida A&M University (FAMU) and the University of Florida implemented a 2 + 2 joint degree in Forestry and Natural Resources Conservation (FNRC). This program has been largely funded by the national initiatives of the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The year 2002 marked the tenth anniversary of what is now considered one of the most successful of the national initiatives of the USFS. The purpose of the symposium was to highlight the program and its contribution to increasing minority professionals in forestry and natural resource conservation. The tenth anniversary symposium brought together graduates of the program, current students and officials from the universities, the USFS, other agencies, and private industry. It also offered an opportunity for FNRC professionals, especially minorities from public and private industry, to interact and educate future professionals. The theme of the symposium was "Education, Training, and Diverse Workforce." Two field trips were undertaken during the symposium. The first one was conducted in the Apalachicola National Forest, while the second one covered the canopy roads of Tallahassee, Leon County in North Florida.
