For more than 100 years, the Forest Service has brought together people and communities to answer the call of conservation. Our shared stewardship with volunteers and service participants, retirees, youth groups, conservation organizations and other partners help us conserve the public lands legacy for future generations.
A values based, purpose driven, relationship-focused agency, the Forest Service encourages and invites community and citizen engagement.  Our core values of service, conservation, interdependence, diversity, and safety underpin our work together. This is who we are and how we work.
This website provides access to resources about citizen stewardship activities and engagement on Forest Service lands. We are so excited to work with you. Welcome.
