MFA was formed in 1938 to guard and grow Mississippi's forests, and that is still our goal today. Since 1938 MFA members have been the leaders in forestry conservation, management, and education so that we can use our state's greatest natural resource for our needs today and ensure that the forests will be in better condition for future generations. We go to great lengths to educate and inform Mississippians about forestry because if we don't, all the knowledge, innovation, and progress will be lost.
Many of our education efforts go towards children. As responsible conservationists, MFA members want children to continue the legacy of responsible forestland conservation for many generations to come. It is also a priority to inspire children to appreciate the forestland that provides such abundant benefits for Mississippians. MFA is currently closing out their fundraising efforts for the very popular interactive forestry exhibit at the Mississippi Children's Museum.
