A Note from Our Director

Growing Our Guild Community in 2017

To Our Members and Supporters,

As I reflect on what we have achieved together, I've realized what many of our members already know: the Guild is much more than a professional society - we're a community of people from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines who share a common goal of conserving forests for all their values. As members, supporters, and partners of the Guild, you are an important part of that community. This year, we’re planning a number of activities to build on that strength.

2016 Annual Review

We’re reaching from coast to coast with program staff now deepening our roots in five regions of the country. And while we’re excited about our expanding reach, we know that the real difference we make is with people.
