ABOUT US

WE ARE ESFWA.

Our Mission:

The Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association was founded in 1998 by a group of concerned citizens who support a vision of sustainable forest practices. Members of ESFWA understand that humans are but one of hundreds of species in any region, each of which is important in its own right as an integral part of the ecological web.


Members include established Eastern Shore families and new residents, woodlot owners, foresters, business owners and professionals, all deeply concerned about the health and future of our forests and wild lands.


Simply stated, we address local environmental issues as they emerge, with reasoned argument and passion for the Earth.
