The Center for Northern Woodlands Education Strategic Plan

Read the Full Plan

For more than two decades, the Center for Northern Woodlands Education has welcomed people into the woods and into each other’s company. Our focus is communication and our greatest asset is our reputation as an inclusive, trusted source on forest issues. As we look to the future, we intend to put greater emphasis on collaboration and strategic partnerships in order to amplify the voices of those who work in and on behalf of forests. I’m excited for the opportunity to grow the community of people who connect with and care for the land. Thank you for being part of this work.
