July 13th - 19th, 2020
Join us in celebrating the importance of our forests and grasslands. Through a growing movement of passionate voices, we are highlighting how special and vital these lands are for our freedom and quality of life during National Forest Week.SM
In the midst of the pandemic, we recognize not everyone can access to their National Forests for outdoor recreation. We look forward to celebrating National Forests virtually and encouraging Americans to connect with their forests online and in the future.
While we may not have large in-person events this year, we are excited to hold our annual photo contest, livestream events, and other fun ways to celebrate from home. We'll be sharing new content about some incredible experiences you can only find on your National Forests and can't wait to hear from you about your favorite National Forest memories.
We want to hear your National Forest story. Share #NationalForestWeek on your social media channels and follow the National Forest Foundation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to come alongside our celebrations during National Forest Week!
Interested in partnering or connecting for National Forest Week? Reach out to Zoe Bommarito at firstname.lastname@example.org.
