“It is a certainty that demands on the world’s forest lands will become greater while the area available for forest production will decrease …
The question facing us is not whether to use the forest resource but how to use it wisely for the greatest benefit to man in the long term.”

-Bruce Zobel, Forest Geneticist


Michigan Forests Forever Project Environmental education has been with us for decades. Generations have learned much about "nature" but few environmental education efforts have focused on how natural resources must be utilized so that we, as a society, will be able to continue to extract raw materials in a sustainable manner that is acceptable in social, ecological, and economic ways. Teachers and educators are encouraged to look beyond just the "touch-see-understand" mode of environmental education, and look into the intriguing and fascinating world of natural resource management.
