Supporters

In January 2012, FLC introduced its “Campaign for Influence and Visibility: Sustainable Forest Management and Regulatory Common Sense.This active fundraising campaign includes outreach to members and stakeholders with a request to support FLC in its legislative advocacy and education programs to benefit small forest landowner members.

As the economy improves and demand for forest products grows, 2013 is shaping up to be a good year for California’s private forest landowners. The Forest Landowners of California (FLC) is continuing its important fundraising campaign – Influence and Visibility: Sustainable Forest Management and Regulatory Common Sense. We appreciate the past support of members and others; and we hope for renewed and new support for our important mission.

Since 1975, FLC has been the primary voice for non-industrial family-owned forests in California. The family nature of our membership enables us to speak from a unique and respected position in advocacy conversations about California forestry. We promote the important benefits of managed forests to policy makers, members of the public and to the environmental community.

We know that effectively managed forest lands make positive contributions to both California’s economy and the environment. Unfortunately, the small non-industrial landowner has been severely impacted by a burdensome and counterproductive regulatory system, which has directly contributed to a shrinking timber industry.  We are working hard to tell policy makers and the public about the benefits that managed forestlands provide to all Californians. We are reaching out to our friends and stakeholders who have shared interests and asking for your assistance. With this support we can continue to amplify our collective and influential voices in Sacramento and increase the visibility of California’s excellent forest management.

Here are a few of our recent successes that benefit FLC members:

  • Became more proactive on the legislative front, participating in meetings of the Timber Harvest Working Group (THWG), a forum established by Assemblymembers Wes Chesbro and Roger Dickinson last year. The THWG meetings will continue to provide FLC the opportunity to present initiatives designed to benefit forest landowners.
  • Collaborated with the California Licensed Foresters Association and the Buckeye Conservancy to introduce legislation to enact the Working Forest Management Plan (WFMP); the bill, AB 904, passed the Senate Natural Resources Committee and is on its way to the Senate Appropriations Committee.
  • Sponsored five Field Days (one more than prior years) – workshops on FLC member properties. Education programs continue to be a strategic initiative as identified by members.

In order to continue the good work accomplished we are asking our stakeholders and associates to join us in our fundraising campaign for greater influence and visibility. Our goal is to raise $20,000. We have established a tiered value system that offers multiple opportunities for your contribution to be recognized.
