Our strategy for achieving the mission is to provide action opportunities to targeted audiences to enable them to improve their environment with trees. We do this by using the best science to identify conservation issues, then develop and market practical solutions that individuals and groups can apply.
Native Forest Council is dedicated to the preservation and protection of all publicly owned natural resources from destructive practices, sales, and all resource extraction. Commercial timber sales, grazing, mining, and oil and gas extraction all contribute to the destruction and degradation of air quality, wildlife habitat, and of our wilderness areas. We believe a sound economy and environment need not be incompatible, and that current land management practices are devastating to both.
The coalition was then restructured to create a new organization named ForestEthics. Its mission was broadened to protect all endangered forests by redirecting markets toward ecologically sound alternatives. Today, ForestEthics is a leader in the newest evolutionary wave of the environmental movement.
The NFF has established a Community Assistance Program (CAP) to promote the creation of locally-based forest partnerships. Newly-forming (or formed) nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply for grants in the $5K-$15K range. Grants may be used for a wide range of needs including: basic start-up and operating costs, materials and equipment, technical assistance, training, consultants, community outreach, obtaining 501(c)(3) status, program development, group facilitation, nonprofit management skill-building, and communications.
