This report contains a forecast of the economic, social, and environmental outcomes of a reforestation project in the central Mississippi Alluvial Valley (MAV) in northeast Louisiana. This Social Return on Investment (SROI) assessment was commissioned by Restore the Earth Foundation (Restore the Earth), a non-governmental organization that aims to generate support from corporate donors to fund forest and wetland restoration efforts in the MAV. This report looks at the reforestation of 1,943 acres of bottomland hardwood forest planted through investments by Entergy Corporation in the Tensas National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in 2005. Although Entergy Corporation funded the on-the-ground costs of the reforestation project, this report was funded solely by Restore the Earth to provide an independent assessment of the social impacts of the project on key stakeholder groups.
