Community Awards and Recognition

We're honored and grateful to be recognized for our work by the following organizations.


Old-Growth Forest Network

In April of 2023, Rowe Woods was officially inducted into the Old-Growth Forest Network for having some of the last remaining acres of old-growth forest in the nation. The forests that are part of the Old-Growth Forest Network are chosen because they’re among the oldest known forests in their county and have a formal protection in place to ensure the trees and ecosystem are protected from commercial logging.

This induction not only proves that we have this ecologically important habitat on our property, but that our conservation team has been managing this land in a manner that’s helped to keep it healthy.
