Hidden in Plain Sight - AFF Report
NAASF is working with the American Forest Foundation (AFF) on a new initiative to protect key wildlife species on private forest lands across 13 Northeast states from Maine to Virginia. As a major step forward, AFF recently released a report titled “Hidden in Plain Sight” that identifies three priority forest habitat types, key wildlife species, and recommendations for action.
