Founded in 2003 Mt. Adams Resource Stewards (MARS) works to support the ecological and economic health of the communities of the Mt. Adams region.
Mt. Adams Resource Stewards mission is to promote sustainable connections between the land, local economies, and rural communities in the Mt. Adams Region.
Our efforts seek to grow more vibrant rural communities by:
- Protecting working forests through locally-directed, multiple-use management of the Mt. Adams Community Forest;
- Maintaining and creating reliable, living wage jobs and economic opportunity built around our greatest asset – our natural resources;
- Working with partners to implement land stewardship activities that support healthy ecosystems and fire adapted communities;
- Providing youth with opportunities to engage in the evolving role communities can have in natural resource management, and awareness of the relevance of rural, resource-based communities to our broader society.
