About this blog

Conservation Connect is a project of the National Forest Foundation that has grown out of our learning over the past 7 years making grants and providing technical assistance to collaborative, grassroots organizations working with the U.S. Forest Service to improve their communities, their local economies and their environment–what we call the triple bottom line.

Like in any field, the operating environment, opportunities and constraints are constantly changing.  Legislation passes or fails, elected officials come and go, people migrate in or migrate out.  Through all of this, grassroots organizations and the people that work for them are constantly learning, adapting and innovating to survive.

We have seen this over the years and are now offering this space to share those stories, successes and failures, so that we all may learn and grow as a result.

Over the last year, the National Forest Foundation has been testing a variety of technical assistance services based on our peer learning philosophy such as:  teleconferences, coaching, mentoring, workshops, documenting best practices and developing an online resource library.

This blog is our newest strategy to get information and ideas out to practitioners in a more “real-time” and interactive fashion.  You will be able to look here for announcements of upcoming teleconferences, highlights of best practices in the field, guest perspectives on emerging issues, and an on-going series called the Collaboration Tool Kit 2.0.  You are also encouraged to add your voice to the dialogue by commenting, suggesting topics you’d like to see covered, or submitting your own posts to us as a guest blogger.
