This overview and the accompanying case studies (Finley and Jacobson, Glover and Jones, and Reed) showcase three models for encouraging forest stewardship through informal education. All three cases are rooted in a fundamental premise that knowledge leads to better forestry decisions by landowners. Each case characterizes and emphasizes the importance of partnerships and shared domains, generating leveraged resources and enhanced impact. Through forestry extension and the multiple partnerships involved with educating private forest landowners, we can achieve greater sustainability on the nation's 278 million acres of private forests.
