This Monday, Chris Johnson will appear on WORT-FM in Madison, WI to discuss his and David Govatski's new book, Forests for the People. Forests for the People offers an insightful and wide-ranging look at the actions leading to the passage of the Weeks Act in 1911—landmark legislation that established a system of well-managed forests in the East, the South, and the Great Lakes region—along with case studies that consider some of the key challenges facing eastern forests today. In anticipation of Chris' interview, this week's #ForewordFriday comes from this important new work. Enjoy! And make sure to tune in to WORT-FM at 8:40am Central time on Monday.
