Length: 11 min.
Age Level: 8+

As unsustainable logging continues to ravage landscapes around the world, the Menominee Tribe of Northern Wisconsin is leading the way in regenerative forest management. After 165 years of logging on their reservation, the Menominee forest has a larger volume of standing timber now than it had 160 years ago. Guided by environmental stewardship and traditional beliefs, their management reflect the ethics of the Menominee people: a healthy ecosystem is critical for a healthy community.
