18th annual Heartwood Forest Council

You are invited to the 18th annual Heartwood Forest Council, to be held Memorial Day weekend in the Shawnee State Forest near West Portsmouth, Ohio. The theme of this year's Forest Council is "Burning Issues: Climate is a Forest Product." Each year, Heartwood partners with one or more local organizations to host the Forest Council over the Memorial Day weekend in a different state in the Heartwood region.

Hosts for this year's event include Heartwood, the Buckeye Forest Council, Save Our Shawnee Forest, Voices for the Forest, Meigs Citizens Action Now!, Protect Biodiversity in Public Forests and EarthWatch Ohio. The Heartwood Forest Council is the largest annual gathering of citizens from across the Eastern, Midwestern and Southern U.S. who care about the health and well-being of our nations forests. We will focus on threats to our region and to human and community health, in an atmosphere of collaboration designed to form stronger personal and organizational connections. While addressing the issues we face and celebrating the work that we do, the Forest Council offers participants an opportunity to identify lasting solutions and proven action steps that will move us as a community toward a shared vision of a healthy, just and sustainable society.
