Fleischmann Grant Will Fund Resources Center -- A Million Begets a Million After a Long Struggle
Abstract:A grant of one million dollars from the Max C. Fleischmann Foundation makes it possible to begin construction of a Renewable Natural Resources Center to provide headquarters and services for a consortium of professional resource societies. The center will be in the metropolitan area of Washington, D.C., on a 35-acre tract where the Society of American Foresters (SAF) and American Fisheries Society are already located. Purpose is to strengthen relationships among the member societies, and enable them, singly and jointly, to improve their contributions to conservation and management of the renewable resources. The idea of the consortium developed gradually over the past dozen years, with SAF taking a leading part. It was advanced materially in the early 1970s when money received from the late Tom Gill, and matched by contributions from SAF members, enabled acquisition of the site.
