Athens-based organization wins grant from Forest Service
(2008-05-19)
(WOUB) - The National Network of Forest Practitioners is getting 100-thousand dollars from the U-S Forest Service.

The Athens-based organization competed against others to win the grant.

The money will be used to "encourage innovation and the sharing of knowledge with wood products manufacturers."

Keeping local wood businesses competitive is the primary goal.

The National Network of Forest Practitioners is an alliance of rural people working "to build a forest economy that is ecologically sound and socially just."
