Welcome to IUFC's Website
The Indiana Urban Forest Council, established in 1991, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the public awareness of protecting, expanding and improving Indiana's urban forests. The Council serves as a resource and liaison concerning urban forestry issues within the state and nation.

What's New
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! 
Our Board Fundraising Challenge Grant will be fully matched by the challenging donor who challenged us to raise $15,000 in new dollars.  As a team we raised $15,046 in 2014, with the match that will be $30,046. This has been our most successful year yet! A very special thank you to all the new donors, new private grants, new partnerships and our challenger.

NUCFAC Wants Your Input 
Last year, the National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council) polled attendees at the Partners in Community Forestry Conference in Pittsburgh and learned that you'd like to have more input into Council activities.  We listened to your feedback and have worked diligently this year to gather additional input from our Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) constituencies throughout the country.  As we prepare to finalize the 2016 UCF Challenge Cost Share Grant Program, please take the time to complete this brief survey and help inform the categories for our next grant cycle!  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NUCFACpoll2014 

This is different from the 10-Year Urban Forestry Action Plan survey. Let your voice be heard!
