Forest Society Advocacy

The Forest Society works to influence legislative and administrative decisions made by the federal and state governments by educating its members, issue stakeholders and decision-makers. We focus our attention on land conservation and forestry issues, and work with others to influence decisions on a wide range of environmental issues. We work with Forest Society members, community leaders and other stakeholders to educate decision-makers on core issues of concern. We collaborate with a variety of partners in our advocacy. We convene discussions with stakeholders in specific public policy arenas to assure a broad understanding of issues, including perspectives that are not our own.
