Working Groups

The Longleaf Partnership Council also hosts a number of Working Groups that bring together experts and other interested people to focus on issues that are critical to longleaf restoration. Topics range from prescribed fire to understory restoration to education and outreach. These Working Groups offer an opportunity for anyone, not just Council members, to get involved and contribute their expertise.
