Summary

The US Forest Service-Eastern Region includes 16 National Forests and one Tallgrass Prairie in 20 states across the Great Lakes, New England, Mid Atlantic and Midwest. Over 40% of the U.S. population lives within the boundaries of the Region. The proximity of these Forests to urban centers, as well as to rural and tribal communities, provides bountiful opportunities for collaboration, partnerships and volunteer-based heritage stewardship. This short presentation touches on a variety of partner and volunteer-based initiatives led by the Eastern Region’s National Forests. In particular, we highlight the creative and exciting initiatives that connect youth, students, veterans and tribal members with cultural, traditional and historic properties on National Forest lands. There is no better way to instill a sustainable preservation ethic than to “Pay it Forward” by training the next generation of preservation advocates and professionals.
