Rocky Mountain Program
The NFF has a long history of leading innovative, impactful work across the Rocky Mountains. From our first Treasured Landscapes, Unforgettable Experiences effort addressing post-Hayman Fire recovery in Colorado to more recent work to develop models for collaborative stewardship, we’ve pushed the envelope, explored new partnerships, and worked to support our partners at the USDA Forest Service and in communities across the state.
The NFF is restoring forest health and improving outdoor experiences. The NFF leads large-scale fuel reduction projects to mitigate wildfire risk, protect watersheds, and enhance wildlife habitat. We often focus on cross-boundary projects that can benefit all lands or on projects that help National Forests recover from wildfires. We’re working hand in hand with the Forest Service and state and local partners to accelerate forest health and watershed improvements. In addition, we improve outdoor experiences by improving trails, campgrounds, trailheads, cabins, and other recreation sites. We often lead this work in concert with nonprofit partners and contractors around the state.
To support this work, we develop and manage innovative funding mechanisms and support collaborative fundraising efforts.
