The Urbanwood Project is coordinated by Recycle Ann Arbor and is a cooperative partnership with the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity, Habitat for Humanity Haslett ReStore, and local Urbanwood producers. This program was initially coordinated by the Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation and Development Council and received early financial support through grants from USDA Forest Service Wood Education and Resource Center.
