Forestry in the Watershed Talk Series: Logan Johnson ‘Stewardship, Conservation and the Maine Tree Farm Program’
April 11, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Logan Johnson is the coordinator for the Maine Tree Farm Program, a recognition program for landowners committed to sustainable forest stewardship. Logan, who grew up in Calais, ME, has a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology and is currently a Master of Forestry student at the University of Maine. While pursuing his biology degree, he spent two summers as an environmental co-op with Woodland Pulp LLC in Baileyville and two summers as a conservation intern with Downeast Lakes Land Trust in Grand Lake Stream. Prior to joining the Maine Tree Farm, Logan was an AmeriCorps service member, hosted by Buzzards Bay Coalition in New Bedford, MA. He served as Land Stewardship Coordinator responsible for coordinating volunteers, monitoring private and fee owned conservation land, and trail construction and general reserve maintenance. He has spent much of his time communicating with landowners and communities at-large about how they perceive their local conservation organizations and the importance of land stewardship and how communities can work together to ensure the quality of their environment.
