Pacific Northwest Forest Service Association (PNWFSA)

  • Home

The Pacific Northwest Forest Service Assoc. had its origins in 1945
when the 30-Year Club was started in Portland. 

We're a 501(c)(3) organization of 840+ strong
with members spread all over the country.

We stay in contact with colleagues & friends made during our Forest Service careers.

Through grants, we help improve resources on National Forests
and provide educational opportunities about those resources... More information

When disaster hits, we help Forest Service employees
or retirees & families recover financially...

We offer scholarships to students for college or trade schools... More information

Our quarterly newsletters are filled with interesting and timely information.  The 2021 Fall Newsletter focuses on district rangers for today and the future, the ACES program, High Desert Museum update, building Resilient Futures and Ecosystems, and much more .

We stay up to date on National Forest management and issues
as well as Pacific Northwest Research accomplishments.

When we begin to see "normal" after the pandemic, we'll be gathering for lunch the last Friday of each month at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Portland, OR, and each year at a banquet in May and a picnic in August.

See Events for more information.

If you have some connection with the Pacific Northwest
(or would like to have)
join us. 
Membership is complimentary for new applicants.


Given the COVID-19 pandemic,
monthly lunches at 
the Old Spaghetti Factory
are cancelled until 
further notice.
