Making a Difference with Reforestation

Gabrielle Harden’s research experience in Africa changed her life

Gabrielle Harden, 28, came from Detroit, Michigan, to the University of Idaho for its forestry program and by her own sense of adventure. Through opportunities at the College of Natural Resources, she developed her leadership and research skills, including work in Togo, Africa, one of the most deforested countries in the world, an experience she says changed her life. After graduating, Harden hopes to find work in reforestation.
