We have a board of directors and an executive director who oversees the day-to-day operations.
FNRL is a student leadership organization funded (partially) by the Oregon Department of Education. We are a CTSO (Career Technical Student Organization). Similar to FFA, FBLA, DECA, etc.
FNRL is dedicated to training and supporting teachers and students in forestry and natural resource programs. We provide leadership training to students and professional development to staff.
FNRL chapters are Forestry or Natural Resource Programs of Study in high schools in Oregon. These are CTE (Career Technical Education) programs. These programs go through a process to become "Approved Programs of Study." This includes college partnerships, and student leadership (FNRL).
FNRL is working to expand to neighboring states that have similar programs.
ODE's funding provides part-time contract pay and minor program funding. All other funding comes from private donations or grants.
The simple definition is
FNRL programs teach forestry and natural resources to high school students.
