In California, we rely on our National Forests for half of our water.

That is one of the many reasons why the NFF is working to restore the valuable resources in the forests that contribute to $37 billion in food and commodities. From our work in the Tahoe on aquatic, forest and rural communities to our work in the Angeles National Forest to reforest and restore native plant communities, we are improving the value of the lands that cover 20 percent of California. Our California National Forests not only provide critical ecosystem services, but they support 38,000 jobs in the outdoor industry.

By promoting sustainable recreation that protects natural resources, the National Forest Foundation is ensuring local economies succeed while fish and wildlife thrive.
