The Florida Forest Service's mission is to protect Florida and its people from the dangers of wild-land fire and manage the forest resources through a stewardship ethic to assure that they are available for future generations.
Pine Log State Forest has hosted many youth events primarily focused on outdoor education. These events are scheduled upon request and historically, on a periodic basis. However, many partnerships (FWC, NRCS, etc.) have been utilized to provide a well-rounded product. The Chipola district also contains an experienced forester in every county to provide outreach to youth and adults. Other youths programs within our district include the annual Envirothon, FFA Forestry Contest, and Arbor Day celebrations.
