The Alliance coordinates Forests for the Bay, an education and outreach program for landowners who are interested in actively managing their woodland and/or restoring woods on their property.
Forests for the Bay training, events and workshops actively encourages woodland owners to continue providing natural benefits for themselves and their neighbors through management, easing access to conservation funding, and developing educational initiatives. Workshops include “Your Woods and Your Wallet”, “Real Forestry for Real Estate”, “The Woods in Your Backyard”, “Discover your Woods”, and “Family Succession Planning.”
The Forests for the Bay website serves as a clearinghouse of information and resources to help landowners improve the vitality of the woodlands, increase wildlife habitat and protect water quality, generate income and overall enjoyment of their property.
The Alliance maintains LandServer, an online tool to help landowners plan forest improvement projects and evaluate their potential for participation in existing conservation programs or new and emerging markets such as forest mitigation banking and water quality credit trading.
