Spring Brings New Growth in Our Programming, Our Reach, and Our Team

Spring is here and full of possibilities. That means verdant fir tree tips emerging in our forests, the first chinook salmon running in our rivers, and the elusive morels poking through the duff. At World Forestry Center, it also means developing new programming, welcoming new staff, and exploring new avenues to expand the forestry conversation and support constructive action.

Our work continues to center around people. This is why we are dedicated to including more voices, more entry points, and more opportunities to build and strengthen our community across sectors and cultures.

In this edition of the Evergreen, you can read more about this work:

  • Expanding our Team – Earlier this year, we welcomed to World Forestry Center’s staff our new Managing Director, Sue Hildick, and Communications Director, Alli Gannett;
  • State of the Forest exhibit in the Discovery Museum – Through the mediums of art and written stories, our latest exhibition showcases the detailed impacts of wildfires on communities and individuals;
  • Year Two of the Fellowship Program – After spending a year learning about all facets of wildfires, our Fellows are now focused on exploring how they can engage their respective communities or sectors in the wildfire conversation;
  • CANOPY: Forests + Markets + Society – Our forestland investment conference has an updated name that honors our longstanding focus on institutional investments in forests but also recognizes how our programming has evolved to include how those investments reflect a balance of economic, ecological, and social values.

More exciting programming is ahead. But we can’t do this work without the support and donations from our generous community. When you make a gift to World Forestry Center, you support informing, connecting, and empowering our society to create healthier forests and communities. Thank you. 

With appreciation,
Joseph A. Furia
Executive Director
