Williams College students Abby Matheny and Sabrine Brismeur worked on this semester-long project in the Fall of 2021 that focused on giving recommendations to the Woodlands Partnership on the potential establishment of a Forest Center in the region. Their recommendations are based on background research, stakeholder feedback, and an exploration of potential locations for a Center, taking into account the Partnership's mission to support forest conservation, natural resource-based economic development, and improve municipal financial stability.
