Connecting Corporate America to Communities through Public-Private Forestry
“With the support of U.S. Forest Service, we will be able to fill a significant resource gap to better connect the private sector to community forestry initiatives,” said Margaret O’Gorman, President, WHC. “This program also addresses the specific needs of high potential communities where impactful industries are historically located.”
Local case studies will be undertaken across distinct geographic regions. The regions each have unique histories, climate considerations and environmental justice concerns.
The WHC Across Fences Lines Initiative is made possible through a grant from the USDA Forest Service as part of its 2020 Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost Share Grant Program
