"No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship," some wise person once said. The truth of this insight is borne out in the experience we at Blandin Foundation have had through our Vital Forests/Vital Communities (VF/VC) Initiative.
Financial investments help, but the Initiative's most enduring impacts will be due to the individuals who gave of their time and talent in helping build the relationships, partnerships and shared vision that will carry this work into the future.
Follow the links below to profiles of some of those who, in our experience, embody the leadership, vision, and commitment necessary to help ensure that our forests remain an intact and healthy resource for Minnesota's economy, environment and community.
