Earth Day Honored with release of second poster in honor of IYOF

JUNEAU — In honor of Earth Day, the Forest Service is releasing the second poster in a series of four which have been created as part of the International Year of Forests.

In recognition of the strong connection Alaskans have with their national forests, the Alaska Forest Service has chosen to a theme for statewide celebrations — “Alaska’s Forests: More Than A Place to Visit – It’s Where We Live!” To commemorate the year, four posters have been designed “to bring this theme to life.” The second will be released Friday and will be available to the public free at local Forest Service offices.

This second poster is titled “Celebrate Your Heritage,” and speaks to the role and importance of forests in our daily lives. The first poster released was titled “Explore Your Backyard” and posters to follow will be “Cherish Your Inheritance” and “Find Your Inspiration.” A limited number of the first poster in the series may still be available.

In addition to the poster series, the Tongass and Chugach national forests are holding events all year to commemorate IYOF and highlight the importance of sustainable management and conservation of the world’s forests. For a full listing of events go online to myalaskaforests.com.
