Supporting Forest Stewards
Why we support stewards
Our members connect people to the land and advance the stewardship ethic daily.
The Guild is home to mindsets grounded in humility, field observation combined with science, and continual learning from the natural forest ecosystem.
Our first duty is to the forests and their future. This perspective is not always accepted or understood, though we are making great strides toward longer-term planning.
This work, done in this way, can be even more difficult to do alone. We support those who are making these differences, sometimes against resistance and almost always with limited resources.
Forest Stewardship Council support
The Guild is supporting the Forest Stewardship Council and helping respond to their National Risk Assessment for controlled wood. We are hosting webinars and crafting educational materials on a range of topics including:
- Biodiversity in the Klamath-Siskiyou
- Bottomland hardwoods
- Conversion from forest to other land uses
- Mesophytic cove sites
- Old growth
