How the East Central Committee has been active in recent years:
Continued work on the Four Corners Pilot Forestry Project, a private forestland demonstration project covering approximately 100,000 acres in four adjacent townships in four counties.
Worked with partnering agencies and organizations to convene five landowner education events, attracting more than 200 landowners.
Partnered with SWCDs to hire a project coordinator/forester to help oversee the coordination of technical services to interested landowners.
Sought additional federal and state funding to match funds contributed by the East Central Woodland Owners Council and a private landowner.
Initiated the Anoka Sand Plain Forest and Savanna Conservation Project with seven partnering organizations. The project is designed to improve oak savanna habitat. The initial focus is on public lands, with future efforts to focus on private lands. The committee’s work group on this project is pursuing a major grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
