The National Forest Foundation
"Chartered by Congress, the National Forest Foundation was created in 1993 with a simple mission: bring people together to restore and enhance our National Forests and Grasslands.
As the nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service, they work with the agency and thousands of Americans each year to promote the health and public enjoyment of our 193-million-acre National Forest System. They believe that communities should play a leading role in determining the future of our National Forests and Grasslands, so we focus our efforts on connecting these communities, and the people who comprise them, to the tools, knowledge, and funding to become active and devoted stewards of this incredible public estate."
