For almost 50 years, WEC has worked to protect Washington’s forests for current and future generations. The goal of the Evergreen Forest Agenda is to ensure Washington State remains the Evergreen State by protecting state forest land, sustainably managing our private forest land, bringing new incentives and partners to the table, strengthening forestry issues in local communities, and holding our elected officials accountable.

WEC brought together some of the smartest policy makers, business leaders, and carbon forestry experts to discuss opportunities and to answer questions about the state of our forests. Read speakers bios, review their presentation materials, and see photos from the conference here.
