Map and Directions


For generations the #forestproud community has brought tenacity, ingenuity, and perseverance to the task of managing our greatest natural resource. Building the structures in which we live, work, and play. Refining products we use every day. Protecting essential habitat, and managing forests, all the while adapting, evolving, and innovating to meet the challenges at hand.

Today, that community is poised once more to address some of the most pressing challenges we face as a society: reimagining our cities and construction, rethinking our carbon future, re-connecting a rapidly urbanizing population with the natural environment, and ensuring we manage, harvest and conserve to keep forests as forests. In each of those areas there remains tremendous untapped potential to work together, aligning our effort, our resources and our stories to amplify impact..

Telling this story - building trust, support and recognition that accurately reflect the role played by this community - isn’t simply a communications challenge - it’s a ‘connect the dots’ challenge.

For 2018’s #forestproud gathering, ‘Rising to the Challenge’, come join us in Atlanta on Sept 11th and 12th. We promise a BBQ party in the evening, and then a full-day workshop that this year will be less ‘talking heads’ and more ‘let’s roll up our sleeves and get this done’.

Join us for a lively BBQ party in the evening on September 11, in the gorgeous woodlands room at SweetWater Brewery. Prepare to get your selfie on with a wall full of barrels, and celebrate the crisp connection between water, forests, and great beer with friends new and old. We will offer transportation from the Emory Event Center to SweetWater and back again for late nite bowling via a shuttle bus. 



Not quite done with the evening of fun? Come get your bowl on and prove your game is strong. Boasting six lanes, a full-service lounge, video gaming station, large screen televisions, billiard tables and shuffleboard, and a shuttle from the brewery to the bowling alley...you can't miss this. In fact, we'll make it easy for you not to miss it, with a looping shuttle bus running from SweetWater Brewing to the bowling lanes. 



On September 12, roll up your sleeves and don your thinking caps: we are coming together for a full day to dig into some of the most pressing challenges we face as a society: reimagining cities and construction, rethinking our carbon future, re-connecting a rapidly urbanizing population with the natural environment, and ensuring we renew, manage, harvest and conserve forests now and for the future. In each of these areas there remains tremendous untapped potential to work together, aligning our effort, our resources and our stories to amplify impact.
