Our mission: to ensure that genetic diversity is recognized and protected as the foundation of a resilient forested landscape.
The Forest Gene Conservation Association (FGCA) is a not for profit organization unique in its focus on gene conservation, the foundation of resilient forests.
Our goal is to work with and assist forest practitioners to conserve and augment the genetic diversity of forests through Species Conservation, Seed Management Expertise, Climate Change Adaptation, Education & Advocacy.
We partner with the government, forestry sector, not for profit organizations, landowners and many others, to create a genetically diverse, resilient forested landscape that supports healthy ecosystems, healthy people and a healthy economy.
We are foresters, technicians, landowners, ecologists, biologists and seed experts with over 30 years of experience in Climate Change adaptation and forest conservation. Learn more about Our Team, Our Board of Directors, and Our Partners and consider joining the FGCA today!
