How the National Forest Foundation is making a difference
Conservation Connect Program
This program helps develop common visions for forests among divergent interest groups, and increase the capacity and effectiveness of local community nonprofit organizations. Through this program, the NFF offers facilitation, collaboration services, training, mentoring, and more.
A comprehensive approach to share important information about the values that America’s National Forests provide benefiting human and wildlife communities through traditional media channels and social media.
Trees for US
A rapidly growing tree-planting program provides a measurable way to make a significant difference for our National Forests and the citizens who treasure them. With our reforestation partner, the U.S. Forest Service, the NFF restores National Forests that have been damaged by natural events like wildfires, hurricanes, floods, and insect infestations.
A suite of grant programs supports local stewardship organizations to accomplish on-the-ground conservation work and build internal capacity in order to increase the impact and benefits to their community, environment, and economy.
