Forest Stewards Guild Lake States Program
The Guild has a strong presence in the Lake States Region which includes Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Indiana. We are currently working on a project to better understand economic and ecological effects of forest practices and harvesting restrictions on Wisconsin's forest resources and economy. Read more about the project here.
Older examples of regional accomplishments from 2011 include the Lake States regional meeting in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin in October, 2011; and the addition of two forests managed by the Aitkin County Land Department as the first Forest Stewards Guild Model forests in the Lake States. The Cornish and Libby Model Forests have unique biodiversity features including rare ferns, salamanders, and birds, and generally have high value as wildlife habitat. These areas also have value as demonstration areas for educational purposes for the general public and natural resource professionals.
