The Michigan SFI Implementation Committee (SIC) did more than just win the SFI Implementation Committee Achievement Award. Howard Lindberg, Chair of the Michigan SIC, gave a rousing acceptance speech that inspired the entire SFI family to do more to spread the SFI message about strengthening connections between healthy forests, sustainable communities and responsible purchasing.
Howard and the Michigan SIC practice what they preach. Michigan's forests are expanding, even in unlikely places like Detroit. The Michigan committee worked with The Greening of Detroit and other partners to improve Detroit's urban forests and revitalize the city by planting trees. They will be participating in a second tree planting on Saturday, October 11th.
The Michigan SFI Implementation Committee has also placed an SFI ad in the Michigan Hunting and Trapping Digest. On top of that, the committee just installed the first of two SFI billboards in Michigan just south of Grayling. It's great to see the passion the Michigan SFI Implementation Committee has for SFI - congratulations again on the award.
