Please join the Sustainable Urban Forests Coalition (SUFC) for an Urban & Community Forestry Program stakeholders call. Paul Ries, Director of Cooperative Forestry, USDA Forest Service, will provide a briefing on the FY 2012 President’s proposed budget for the Urban and Community Forestry Program. Learn what strategic initiatives are proposed, and how the Urban and Community Forestry Program will help America’s Great Outdoors initiative.
All cooperators and community partners involved in urban natural resources issues are encouraged to attend. There will be a brief period for Q & A at the close of the call. Space is limited–register now to secure a call-in line.
