Presented by the
National Woodland Owners Association
And the
National Association of University Forest Resources Programs
The National Woodland Owners Association (NWOA), in cooperation with the National Association of University
Forest Resources Programs (NAUFRP), will present the annual FAMILY FORESTS EDUCATION
AWARD at the 2011 Society of American Foresters (SAF) national convention in Honolulu, HI on November 2nd.
The award will be presented to the educational institution deemed to have delivered the most effective education
program benefiting non-industrial private forest (NIPF) landowners. Any educational institution is eligible. The
award will be presented to the administrative unit where the faculty involved in the education program are housed.
An educational program is a combination of educational materials, media and events, including applied research
that supports those efforts, that is conducted over a period of time for the benefit of non-industrial private forest
land owners. The award can recognize effective programs addressing any or all aspects of forest resource
management including, but not be limited to, business management, silvicultural activities, harvesting, and
marketing.
