MLEP provides educational programming in the areas of sustainable forest management, transportation, safety & business management.

The Minnesota Logger Education Program (MLEP) believes a well-trained and experienced logger with a broader vision of forestry can provide a critical link between landowners and other resource professionals. MLEP is a logger-initiated program that was established in 1995 to provide assistance to Minnesota’s logging community through educational programming. This objective is accomplished by partnering with numerous groups to identify needs and facilitating the development, design, delivery and evaluation of programs which focus on sustainable forest management, transportation, safety and business management. MLEP, which is based in Duluth, MN, is a 501(c)(3) organization. It is governed by a thirteen-member board of directors and employs an Executive Director and a part-time Executive Assistant. To date, MLEP has sponsored 489 workshops focused on sustainable forest resource management, business management, professional operations and safety. Participation within the training and education programs exemplifies MLEP's overall support and success with a total combined attendance of 12,588 including 10,344 loggers and 2,244 public and private sector natural resource managers.
