Forests and Public Lands

The Ohio Chapter Forest and Public Lands Committee works with members and organizational allies who have a common interest in preserving Ohio’s forests and public lands for existing and future generations.  The committee welcomes new volunteers to help us move forward the following goals:

Protect Ohio’s state forests, parks, and nature preserves from harmful activities such as clear-cutting, mineral extraction, and oil and gas drilling.
Promote the sustainable and beneficial use of public lands, such as low-impact recreation, species habitat, carbon sequestration, and clean air and water.
Participate in forest planning processes with Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and encourage widespread public input on proposals that impact our state forests, parks, and nature preserves.
Participate in hikes and encourage public appreciation of Ohio’s valuable forests and outdoor areas.
Study the environmental impacts of using forest biomass as a potential fuel source, and participate in existing Chapter efforts to address issues surrounding biomass.

Contact Loraine McCosker, Forest Committee Chair, to learn more and to get involved today.
