Congratulations to PINEMAP for NIFA 2016 Partnership Award

USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture announced yesterday that PINEMAP (The Pine Integrated Network: Education, Mitigation, and Adaptation project) has received a 2016 Partnership Award for their Mission Integration of Research, Education and Extension.  The PINEMAP team from the University of Florida enabled Southern pine landowners to manage forests for increased carbon sequestration and adopt forest management approaches that increased forest resilience and sustainability, according to the press release here.  I’ve done some work with the PINEMAP folk and it is a well-deserved acknowledgment of their work.
