“I support the Forest Society because the organization helps to thoughtfully manage the size and the nature of the footprint we humans leave to our grandchildren’s children.    Further, the mission is focused on a geographic area that is small enough for an organization to know and comprehend, and in which we might make a meaningful difference, yet big enough to be of some larger significance.”
