The Indiana Forest Alliance (IFA) is a non-profit statewide network of groups and individuals dedicated to the long-term health and well-being of Indiana’s native forests. We are volunteers and full-time staff working to provide accurate information to the people of Indiana and to involve them in efforts to protect and restore Indiana’s forests. We attempt to improve forest policies in the state through advocacy using education, grassroots political organizing, research, and litigation.
It is the Mission of the Indiana Forest Alliance to:
- Protect public forests in Indiana to preserve natural diversity and native wildlife that depend on deep forest
- Protect water quality
- Provide dispersed recreation opportunities on public forest land
- Hold government agencies accountable to state and federal laws pertaining to public forests
- Encourage responsible, sustainable, and profitable timber management on private land
