The 2020 State Forest Action Plan - Let Your Voice Be Heard!

 

The 2020 State Forest Action Plan  - Let Your Voice Be Heard!

What is the Forest Action Plan?

Every 5-10 years, Connecticut residents have the opportunity to help shape the future of our state's woodlands through participating in the Forest Action Plan public input sessions. The current CT Forest Action Plan, written in 2010 and updated in 2015, acts as a guide for the Division of Forestry and hopefully inspires others to improve and protect Connecticut's forest resources for future generations.  Created in collaboration with many partners and stakeholders, the Forest Action Plan includes an analysis of current forest conditions, identifies threats and concerns, establishes priorities, and lays out strategies and action steps to best plan for the future of your forested landscape.

 

You Can Shape the 2020 Forest Action Plan!

Your input regarding strategies, policies, and plans for the conservation and development of your forests is critical to ensure the health, well-being, and economy of Connecticut. There are two key ways for you to get involved: 

1) TAKE THE SURVEY: We are asking all CT residents to take this quick survey regarding the Forest Action Plan. We hope to get a broad range of input from people living in Connecticut who care about our forests and woodlands for all sorts of reasons. The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete.  Take the Survey

2) ATTEND A ROUNDTABLE: We will be holding roundtable discussions in three regions of Connecticut: Central, Eastern, and Western. There are two types of roundtable discussions: those for natural resources practitioners, and those for the general public. Make sure to sign up for the meeting that's right for you.
