  1. Multicultural Advisory Committee National Forests in Alabama

  2. MAC Logo The MAC logo conveys that “diversity means more than race or gender.” We manage diverse ecosystems to achieve multiple objectives with a diverse workforce. The design attempts to portray this diversity in both form and word. The multi-designed circles in the single diversity pot represent the total mix of workers, ecosystems, and tasks that form the National Forests in Alabama. This is how we successfully serve the people. Logo design and words by: G. McEldowney
