Join the Build Local Alliance, Forests Forever, Inc., and OSU Extension for an exploration of “Good Wood” Management and Products from local forests.

The Build Local Alliance (BLA) seeks to improve the vitality of local forests and related human communities by connecting local, responsibly grown and processed wood with local projects. The BLA is comprised of forest owners and millwrights, retailers and distributers, designers and architects, craftsmen and builders, developers and homeowners, and other individuals who are interested in developing our local economy through sustainable forestry.
Forest Forever, Inc. (FFI) promotes science-based education to enhance understanding of, and appreciation for the complexities and benefits of woodland management. FFI operates Hopkins Demonstration Forest as an accessible example of sustainable forestry.

•Sustainable management of local forests

•Alternative markets for a wide range of wood products
•Improved returns for small scale harvest operations
•Connecting people and enterprises, from forest to finished product
