Through our campaign to plant 50 million trees, we're working with leading corporations and businesses to address the immense reforestation need facing our forests. Click here to learn more.

Our signature Ski Conservation Fund (SCF) and Forest Stewardship Fund (FSF) programs provide funding for action-oriented on-the-ground restoration projects that improve forest health and outdoor experiences on National Forests and Grasslands. Funds come from guest contributions at ski areas and lodges operating on or adjacent to National Forest System lands, and we add additional funding for the SCF program to increase our impact and get more done on the ground.
