Lumberjack RC&D Council, Inc. recognizes the importance of grass-roots cooperatives that have a conservation goal in mind. Whether it be stopping the spread of invasive species or building young forests, we've made a commitment to help smaller groups reach their goals. Being under the Lumberjack umbrella allows groups to apply for state and federal grants to do conservation work while Lumberjack provides organizational development consulting and administrative management services. Working together, we've made an impact on our landscape!
