LEADERS IN ECOLOGICAL FORESTRY

NNRG Wins Green Globe Award for Leader in Forest Stewardship!

Every two years, the King County Executive recognizes individuals and organizations that are leading the way on environmental issues in our region. 

NNRG is proud and honored to be selected as this year's winner of the Green Globe Award for Leader in Forest Stewardship!

The Office of the King County Executive wrote in their press release about the award: 

Northwest Natural Resource Group (NNRG) partners with King County on forestry-related work and holds King County Parks’ Forest Stewardship Council certification.

NNRG prepared a systemwide forest assessment to help Parks prioritize stewardship related to ecological health, carbon sequestration, and climate resilience – allowing King County to strategically achieve forestry-related commitments described in the 2020 Strategic Climate Action Plan.

It secured grant funding to test climate adaptation in forest management at Taylor Mountain. Over the next two years they will work with King County to thin the forest, create gaps to mimic natural conditions, and test forest management approaches for a changing climate.”

We are honored to be selected for this award, and thank everyone involved!
