#forestproud is a cutting-edge communications effort that builds awareness and support for forest climate solutions among 18- to 34-year-olds outside the forest sector. Those of us who are #forestproud believe: 1) forests offer powerful climate solutions, 2) forest management is how we deliver those solutions, and 3) forest product markets (and the people who support them!) are essential to our future.
