Trees For Tomorrow (TFT) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) natural resources specialty school nestled on over 30 forested acres in Eagle River, Wisconsin. TFT uses a combination of field and classroom studies to teach sustainable practices as well as demonstrate the benefits of contemporary resource management.
Preparing today’s youth to be tomorrow’s stewards of our natural world.
Trees for Tomorrow promotes sustainable management of our natural resources through transformative educational experiences.
Our field-based programs, which place people in direct contact with resources that support human needs, teach knowledge and skills leading to responsible lifestyle choices. This experience inspires informed participation in policy-making and promotes stewardship and renewal of natural resources for use by future generations.
Trees for Tomorrow values the following as central to our success:
Natural resources must be managed for multiple uses for the long-term benefit of everyone. One resource cannot be managed without considering the effect on all others - forest, water, wildlife, soils, and others.
Humans rely on natural resources for survival and quality of life. Our natural resources base is limited and demand is increasing. Proper management and responsible use is essential.
Strong, mutually supportive relationships with a variety of partner organizations, corporations, campuses, agencies and individuals enhance the Trees for Tomorrow experience and advance the Trees for Tomorrow mission.
The highest standards of excellence are maintained by professionally qualified personnel who share a positive attitude, generosity of spirit, high ethical standards, and are open to the views of others.
Experiences at Trees for Tomorrow include enjoying the environment and the family of people within it who enjoy what they do and share that enthusiasm with others.
