The National Association of State Foresters is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2020 with a Centennial Challenge campaign, honoring both the work of the association in providing a unified voice for state and private forestry in the United States since 1920, as well as the tremendous social, environmental, and economic contributions state forestry agencies have made nationwide for over a century’s time.
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. Come January 2020, you’ll start to see the nation’s 59 state and territorial forestry agencies’ challenges appearing on a Centennial Challenge interactive map online.
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.
