National Forests and Grasslands provide Americans with 193 million spectacular acres of wildlands.
All this and the chance to see elk and bear, ducks and deer, trout and trees, thousands of species of plants, and billions of stars in a midnight sky.
Managed by the U.S. Forest Service, our National Forests host 170 million visits every year. Visitor spending pumps $13.5 billion into our economy annually, sustaining nearly 223,000 jobs in gateway communities.
These lands are the foundation of America’s outdoor recreation heritage and sustain our way of life. They provide water to millions Americans in thousands of communities, clean our air, store carbon, and provide timber, minerals, oil and gas and other resources for industry and communities.
Without these lands, America would be a very different place. Help the NFF ensure these lands stay healthy and vibrant for generations to come. Support our work. Join our tree-mail® list. Take a kid camping. Volunteer with a local group. Friend us on Facebook. Hike a new trail.
