A New Book and More!
Joan Maloof teamed up with photographer Robert Llewellyn of Virginia to create The Living Forest: A Visual Journey into the Heart of the Woods. This big, beautiful "coffee table" book has just been released.
It would make a wonderful gift.

All royalties will be donated to the Old-Growth Forest Network. It's available for order at any bookstore or through the OGFN website

Joan also appeared recently in the short film Cathedral: The Fight to Save the Ancient Hemlocks of Cook Forest. Click here to check it out!
OGFN is Hiring!
We are very excited to announce that the Old-Growth Forest Network is able to hire another person to dedicate their days to preserving our ancient forests. This is possible due to a very generous multi-year grant from a private family foundation. The family believed in what the OGFN is doing and wanted to help. 

When we replied that the biggest help would be another person, they agreed.
Of course, we are looking for just the right forest-loving, hard-working, organized person to join us. Please share our job announcement widely. Applications are due November 10.

If you didn't get a copy of our color mailing in July (we only send out one per year), a PDF file is available by clicking here. In the mailing, we list all those who donated to OGFN in 2016 (thank you again!) and all the forests added to the Network in the previous year.

Forests recently added to the Old-Growth Forest Network include:

Crow's Nest Natural Area Preserve in
Stafford County, VA

Chapman Forest Wildlands in
Charles County, MD
What You Can Do

We are more than a network of protected forests; we are a network of people who care about forests.
