Thousands of visitors to the North Carolina State Fair became walking billboards for the North Carolina Forest Service Don’t Move Firewood campaign this fall.  Each visitor to the Fair's Forest was given the opportunity to answer a scavenger hunt type quiz in the Forest Service’s tent; once they answered all the questions they received a red drawstring backpack with a “don’t move firewood” message on the back.

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

Recently, here in (town) they banned outdoor wood burning furnaces. What's the deal? Burning wood is cheap! I'm angry*!

Yours,

Frustrated

Dear Don't Move Firewood,

You say that we shouldn't move firewood, but don't Christmas trees move really far before they get to our house? What about that? Can't that spread pests?

Yours,

Concerned about Christmas

 

Dear Concerned,

When most people hear the word "Quarantine," they think of isolating a person that's sick with some dangerous, contagious disease. When we talk about a forest pest related quarantine, the underlying concept is the same- it is just that instead of not letting people move around, we're often talking about not moving firewood around.

Did you know that 20% of US residents identify themselves as a birdwatcher, bird lover, or birder? That's a LOT of binocular wielding citizen scientists!
