Community Outreach

Executive Director of RFFI

It is Spring and RFFI has certainly sprung into action as we actively pursue community involvement on many fronts. In March, I joined Mike Faye and many community and educational groups, to celebrate the launch of the Northern California Geotourism website, The website is the creation of the National Geographic Society's Center for Sustainable Destinations and shares many of RFFI's hopes for nourishing new, sustainable economies in this region.

RFFI is also a leader in Redwood Futures, described in the feature article of this issue. We have assumed a leadership role in Redwood Futures because it is our belief that we can harness the buzz created by the National Geographic article and documentary to further RFFI's mission. Our participation is as one of the "glue" organizations critical to holding this work together during these early stages.

These efforts - all of which promote regional collaboration - will greatly accelerate the work of rebuilding forest ecosystems and the social and economic well-being of our communities. We encourage you to be part of this work by getting involved and supporting RFFI in any way you can (yes we also need volunteers!) We need the administrative capacity to keep these ground-breaking initiatives moving forward.
