Review for Forest History Society, Durham, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a volunteer for two years, I consider the FHS a unique and invaluable archive and research center for all things related to forests, the wood industry, and environmental history. If they don't have what you are looking for, their archivists know where you can find it. Any level of information request, from grade school research projects to published authors, is given professional consideration, free of charge. The staff is passionate and knowledgable as well as a surprisingly friendly group that seem to truly enjoy their work. Their research and publications expand our understanding of forest and envrionmental history and how it relates to our world today.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Move the collection to a larger space to allow FHS to continue to expand it's archive, and to hire additional staff to allow for more research opportunities.

Would you volunteer for this group again?
