SFI-PLT-MANRRS Journeys Posters

Inspire young Black Americans to pursue forest and conservation careers by telling the stories of Black Americans who have taken this career path and who have advice and resources to share.

We’re thrilled to announce a first-of-its-kind resource, the SFI-PLT-MANRRS Black Faces in Green Spaces: Journeys of Black Professionals in Green Careers guide, the result of a partnership with MANRRS aimed at ensuring young Black Americans have greater opportunities for rewarding careers in the forest and conservation sector.
