Educating Tomorrow’s Leaders

Educating Georgia’s next generation of decision makers is the most important step we can take to safeguard one of our most valuable renewable resources: our forests.

If forestry is to continue to thrive in the 21st century, today’s students, who are tomorrow’s voters and policy makers, must understand the role of forests in producing clean air and water, providing wildlife habitats, and sustaining economic prosperity. If we fail, we risk the loss of the state’s greatest environmental protection assets and economic drivers.
