Centennial Challenge

The National Association of State Foresters is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020 (and now 2021 too!) with a Centennial Challenge campaign, honoring both the work of the association in providing a unified voice for state and private forestry in the U.S., as well as the tremendous social, environmental, and economic contributions of state forestry agencies nationwide.

NASF will be spotlighting state forestry agencies and their work to complete 100-themed challenges regularly throughout the year-long campaign. Keep an eye out for your state’s Centennial Challenge celebration on social media with the hashtags #CentennialChallenge and #NASF100​ or by following the handle @stateforesters on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

You can learn more about individual state and island Centennial Challenges by visiting NASF100.org and clicking on the interactive event map (pictured below).

Planning considerations for states

State and territorial forestry agencies are participating in the Centennial Challenge by planning, completing, and documenting unique 100-themed forestry events/programs/initiatives (referred to as “challenges”) commemorating 100 years of state forestry. Centennial Challenges may vary dramatically in scale and scope from state to state. For more information on changes to the Centennial Challenge campaign given COVID-19, click here.
