The NASF Foundation photography fellow Leslie Robertson is headed to the forests of Minnesota on July 14.
Robertson will document working forests of Minnesota, including economic benefits from recreation in state forests, public benefits such as clean air and water from St. Paul's urban forests, as well as the professionals that work for the Department of Natural Resources.
Robertson's plan for the project will be to "[Demonstrate] the life that surrounds forest and forestry—allowing people to connect and relate to the people, animals, plants, and industry that revolve around forests," Robertson wrote in her application.
We’d like to thank the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources' Division of Forestry team for jumping on board with this exciting project. Learn more about the host state at forestactionplans.org/states/minnesota.
