National Association of State Foresters
NWOA works closely with all state forestry agencies. They are a landowner’s first line of defense from wildfire and declining forest health while providing forestry advice and market
assistance. State Foresters are important as legislatures debate laws affecting woodland owners.
National Association of University Forest Resources Programs
The state land-grant universities are the home to the state schools of forestry and the cooperative forestry extension faculties. Forestry education is the foundation of successful family
woodland stewardship. In partnership with NAUFRP, NWOA presents two annual awards, one for the Out- standing Family Forestry Education Program, and a second award for the outreach project to
help woodland owners.
