The Forest History Society (website).

The Forest History Society is a nonprofit library and archive dedicated to collecting, preserving, and disseminating forest and conservation history for all to use. The Society links the past to the future while reminding us about our important forest heritage. As part of our mission, FHS is continually seeking innovative ways of enhancing its programs in research, publication, and education, and new methods for promoting the study of environmental history. Towards that end, you’ll now find us on Facebook and Twitter and blogging at Peeling Back the Bark. We invite you to take a tour of FHS, and then explore the website and discover your forest heritage! (Text from The Forest History Society)

The Society’s publications include Issues Series and the Forest History Today magazine, and the Society is a co-publisher of the quarterly journal Environmental History. Its research portal allows researchers to access resources online, and also offers fellowships and awards. It also hosts an Educational Outreach Program
