Forest Futures

Forest Futures has received grant reports from its first round of grantees. We are excited to share the powerful impacts of those funds. Key takeaways include:

  • Flexible use of philanthropic funding helps fill in the gaps of more restrictive public funds and supports capacity building that is critical to success 
  • Funding for housing stipends has captured the attention of other stakeholders and is paving the way for a new partnership
  • Most grants focus on shovel-ready projects, but we learned that our planning dollars were essential for keeping project work moving forward and enabling acceleration of projects on Forest Service land

The feedback from grantees has validated our Impact Strategy to advance wildfire prevention and forest health goals in our region.

The Forest Futures Salon Series continued with September’s topic “Woody Biomass Utilization for Healthier Forests: Local Solutions in Development”. Speakers focused on the undeniable need for biomass outlets in our region and what projects and partnerships are currently underway to accelerate the opening of local outlets. Representatives from each of these proposed biomass facilities, partnerships, and research projects shared updates and anticipated timelines for their work.
