The Pinchot Institute for Conservation strengthens forest conservation thought, policy, and action by: advancing sustainable forest management, developing conservation leaders, and providing science-based solutions to natural resource issues.
Recognized as a leader in forest conservation thought, policy and action, the Pinchot Institute for Conservation was dedicated in 1963 by President John F. Kennedy, Jr. at Grey Towers National Historic Landmark (Milford, PA)--home of eminent conservation leader Gifford Pinchot. The Institute is an independent nonprofit organization that works collaboratively with all Americans nationwide--from federal and state policymakers to citizens in rural communities--to strengthen forest conservation in the ways that are stated in our mission. Each year, the Institute administers five programs that conduct policy research and analysis; convene and facilitate meetings, workshops, and symposia; produce educational publications; and provide technical assistance on issues that affect national-level conservation policies and the management of the national forests and other natural resources.
