About Two Countries, One Forest

Who we are:

2C1Forest is a major Canadian-U.S. collaborative of 50 conservation organizations, researchers, and foundations working to conserve and restore the forests and natural heritage of the Northern Appalachian Acadian ecoregion. Click on links to learn about our board of directors and partners.

Our vision: 

2C1Forest will work for the transformation of parks, refuges and forests across the Northern Appalachian Acadian ecoregion into a living, breathing ecosystem for species, plant and animal, large and small.

We will realize this vision by:

  • working and thinking at an ecoregional level, and within ecological borders versus political boundaries
  • defining a clear framework of understanding and developing a network that facilitates and supports a cross-border sharing of vital information; and
  • using the basic principles of science-based, landscape-level conservation.

To that end, 2C1Forest is focused on three active roles and immediate priorities:


  • serving as a forum to enhance collaboration among conservation organizations and scientists, at the ecoregional level;
  • harnessing cutting-edge science for conservation planning, at the ecoregional level; and
  • promoting science-based, ecoregional conservation and restoration

Our priorities:

  • major science/policy studies on ecological trends in the ecoregion;
  • a major conservation initiative to map and save the key habitats and corridors that connect and sustain this ecoregional landscape; anda broad-based communication strategy to educate people in the ecoregion on its vast ecological wealth and conservation potential.
