This year’s theme invites the public to consider what Forest Mode looks like in their life. Whether it is a thrilling whitewater adventure, a quiet evening by the campfire, or a rugged trek on backcountry trails, there are countless ways people find their Forest Mode.

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