Karren DeSeve, a Pennsylvania landowner enrolled in the American Forest Foundation's Family Forest Carbon Program, recently shared her story with our partners at The Nature Conservancy. She discussed her family’s desire to make a difference for future generations through positive forest stewardship.

FFCP is a wonderful opportunity to set an example for our grandson, to help us focus on how we can best steward this land.
