Purpose: The state of American Indian forest and forest management has been identified by the national report completed by IFMAT-III. The Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies has joined the ITC to convene federal and tribal representatives along with academia to attend a tribal forestry summit that will address two issues, which include the challenges of the federal trust relationship on Indian forests and also the workforce development needed to help manage the forests.
The summit will include a panel day to hear about the state of the forest and forest management workforce, then a roundtable day for attendees to discuss the issues and possible solutions in a roundtable format.
Registration for the event is free, and a detailed program description is available.
