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 now a 501(c)(3) organization of 870+ strong
with members spread all over the country.

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

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

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

We stay up to date on National Forest management and issues
as 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
(or would like to have)
join us. 
Membership is complementary for new applicants.
