Liz Jackson is the Engagement Specialist for the Hardwood Tree Improvement & Regeneration Center, Executive Director of the Indiana Forestry & Woodland Owners Association, and the Executive Director of the Walnut Council.
Her goal is to provide woodland owners in Indiana (through the nonprofit Indiana Forestry & Woodland Owners Association) and the Midwest and beyond (through the nonprofit Walnut Council and the Hardwood Tree Improvement & Regeneration Center) with resources and information useful to their land ownership objectives and encouraging them to be good stewards of their woodlands. Primary outputs are developing communications products (newsletters, websites, and social media) and events for landowners to share the latest information.
She received her B.S degree in Forestry from Purdue and an M.S. in Management (Industrial Forestry) from Krannert School of Management at Purdue. After 13 years experience in manufacturing, she joined the staff in 2004.
