Track 1 – Reviewing the FLA’s Ongoing Efforts to Educate and Advocate for Private Forest Landowners with Federal Agencies and Policymakers

As frustrating as it can be to see an inaccurate and uninformed picture of private forest landowners painted in the public domain, willfully ignoring this reality is not a practical strategy. The good news is that the association long ago recognized the importance of not allowing our narrative to be shaped by those ignorant of or openly hostile to private forest landowners. Populated by FLA staff, this panel will offer the audience a close look at the work the association is doing to ensure that policy makers, federal agencies, NGOs and the general public understand the critical role private forest landowners are playing in the sustainable preservation of this country’s working forests.
