The Forest Legacy Program, For Now And Forever

The Forest Legacy Program began in Vermont and was established in the 1990 Farm Bill to protect forest areas through acquiring the land for public ownership or purchase. This film highlights the genesis of the program in Vermont to protect working forests and the eventual spread of the program nationwide. Four projects are highlighted from Vermont as well as Florida, Arizona, New Mexico and Montana, showing how the program is used to protect important forestland.
