Keith Turnquist


University of Wisconsin Stevens Point has been a home to Keith Turnquist as a student, researcher, occasional instructor, building manager, and now as program manager for the Wisconsin Forestry Center (WFC). Learn about the work of the center here. The WFC works closely with faculty and instructors in the forestry discipline in the College of Natural Resources.

As a former researcher in conservation genetics, he refined skills in genetics/genomics to address questions related to fishery management.  He relishes time outdoors, hunting and fishing, when away from the university.
