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

  The 2023 Spring Newsletter is dedicated to the Mt. St. Helens Monument. It also includes an update from the National Museum of Forest Service History and a welcome to new members.  Due to the overwhelming response to the theme of this newsletter, the Memories column is not included.  It will run in the Summer edition.

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

We gather 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

Membership is complimentary for the first year for new applicants.
