NASF is celebrating 100 years of national forestry leadership between its September 2019 Annual Meeting and its September 2020 Annual Meeting. The NASF Centennial Challenge will honor the tremendous social, environmental, and economic contributions state forestry agencies have made nationwide by spotlighting their efforts regularly throughout the year-long campaign.
Planning considerations for states
At the NASF 2018 Annual Meeting in Whitefish, Montana, state foresters agreed to appoint a person in their state by May 1, 2019 to plan, complete, and document a “100”-themed forestry event/program/initiative (referred to as a “challenge”) commemorating 100 years of state forestry. Centennial Challenges may vary dramatically in scale and scope from state to state.
