Protecting History

It takes a whole community to preserve, provide, and promote forest and conservation history. The Forest History Society works with a number of organizations to share the history of man and forests for all. This includes the Forest History Society's affiliation with Duke University since 1984, as well as a partnership with the American Society for Environmental History since 1996.
