Faith in the Forest

Our forests are sacred places. They soothe the soul and reconnect us to something bigger than ourselves. Watch Karenna Gore and Poppy Jones of The Center for Earth Ethics in their Stories Happen in Forests video about the deep spiritual connection they find in the woods. As we gear up for the holiday season, we’re all looking to feel more connected in this world, to show love and gratitude for all our blessings. From clean air and water to peace and wonder, we must remember that we have our forests to thank for so much.


Give the gift of forest protection on behalf of a loved one & be a monthly giving hero for our forests!

Dogwood is a lean but effective nonprofit that must be nimble enough to quickly respond to new threats while also being bold and strategic with its long-term vision to protect millions of acres of Southern forests. We can’t do it without the ongoing monthly support of our Forest Defenders.
