Mission Statement- School Forest

School Forest logo

A mission statement will help to guide and direct your School Forest Committee's methods, strategies, and goals for years to come. The mission statement will also serve to inspire, support, and motivate commitment to the School Forest goals.

The Mission Statement Worksheet can help guide your committee as you work on developing a mission statement.

If writing a mission statement does not follow your school's structure, consider writing a School Forest Committee Charter. Talk with a school administrator to determine if this is right for your site. You will need to independently investigate a charter outline.


Sample mission statement from Pillager School Forest:
To provide students with a hands-on, outdoor classroom that will enable each student to develop a life-long land stewardship ethic through the experience of actively managing a 120-acre wood lot using sound silvicultural and biological principles.
