Vital Ground’s Alvord Lake Project is Model of Forest Cooperation

A unique U.S. Forest Service fund; a state fish and wildlife trust; community conservation and educational groups; and, of course, generous individual donors. From the federal to the local, the effort to create Alvord Lake Community Forest out of a proposed lakeshore subdivision is the largest and most collaborative forest management project in Vital Ground’s history.
