On Wednesday, April 3rd at Noon ET, we held an Instagram Live with Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center to discuss the Appalachian Regional Reforestation Initiative (ARRI). This successful program has worked to reforest and revegetate former mine sites since 2004. With over 10,000 acres of reforested mine lands and a science-based approach to reforestation that includes partners from state & federal agencies, non-profits, and academic institutions, ARRI has a proven track record of sustainable growth across the region.
