National Forest Foundation

National Forests and Grasslands provide Americans with 193-million spectacular acres of wildlands.

  • 9,126 miles of scenic byways to drive
  • 148,295 miles of trails to hike
  • 4,418 miles of wild and scenic rivers to float
  • 5,107 campgrounds in which to pitch our tents
  • And 328 natural pools to swim in

All this and the chance to see elk and bear, ducks and deer, trout and trees, thousands of species of plants and animals, and billions of stars in a midnight sky.

Founded by Congress in 1991, the National Forest Foundation works with the U.S. Forest Service to care for these natural treasures for the millions of visitors they receive each year and for you, and those who come after you.

The National Forest Foundation brings people together to restore and enhance our National Forests and Grasslands. As the nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service, we engage America in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the National Forest System. We also administer private gifts of funds and land for the benefit of the National Forests.

In helping the U.S. Forest Service fulfill its mission "to maintain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations" we work in close collaboration with local people and communities. We believe that communities should play a leading role in determining the future of the 193 million acres that make up our National Forests and Grasslands.

Featured story

 
A common thread connecting all National Forest Foundation (NFF) programs and initiatives is an interest in action-oriented projects that enhance the viability of natural resources while considering benefits to, and the involvement of, surrounding communities. Our non-federal partners run the gamut from start-up, collaborative organizations, to sustainable organizations with rich histories of conservation successes.
