Community Forests give local people a say in how they benefit from forests by participating in management decisions. This model provides community ownership and protection of forestland in a way that promotes good jobs, opportunities for recreation, wildlife habitat, clean air and water, and climate resilience.
The Senate is considering a bi-partisan bill (SB 5873) to provide new funding for locally owned Community Forests.
Contact your legislators today to show your support for Community Forests around the state. We can provide local governments, Tribes, and non-profit organizations with the resources they need to protect locally important forestlands and the benefits that they provide.
