The Urban Wood Network was launched last summer by representatives of Illinois, Michigan, Missouri and Wisconsin. Membership is not only open to entities and individuals in those states, but to others east of the Rocky Mountains.
Speaking of webinars, the Wood Education and Resource Center will present its Spring Urban Wood webcast on Tuesday, April 3. Highlights include updates of the Urban Wood Network and work to develop urban wood certification standards.
