Nearly 50 years after its founding, the Pinchot Institute for Conservation fulfills the unique role within the conservation community for which it was conceived by the Pinchot family, and established in partnership with the USDA Forest Service at what is now Grey Towers National Historic Site.
The mission of the Pinchot Institute is to strengthen forest conservation thought, policy and action by:
1) advancing sustainable forest management;
2) developing conservation leaders;
3) providing science-based solutions to emerging natural resource issues.
We accomplish this through nonpartisan research, education and technical assistance on key issues influencing the future of conservation and sustainable natural resource management.
