About the Program
Eastman’s Texas Operations is located in Longview, TX. The company maintains a 113-acre forested region including a 40-acre Demonstration Forest dating back to 1999. The Demonstration Forest was initially used to illustrate effective forest management techniques. The site now includes a nature center and is used for educational purposes for local K-12 students. Eastman continues to maintain the forest and nature center with the goal to allow students the opportunity to engage in outdoor educational activities.

Practices and Impacts
  • Team members host Forest Awareness Tours for K-12 students throughout the year with goal to increase appreciation of the local forest habitat and to develop a sense of environmental stewardship. Lessons that are tailored to different grade levels and align with Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills state standards are implemented, including lessons from Project Learning Tree.
