Thank you to all of you that have donated to the Elmer Moyer Emergency Fund to help those members of the Forest Service family that have been impacted by the unprecedented wildfires this fall.   The response has been great, with over $25,000 in donations.  We have provided $15,000 in immediate financial aid to 21 employees and retirees and we expect additional requests to be coming forward.

If you or if you know someone who needs assistance,
contact Kurt Wiedenmann. at or 208-501-4258

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 860+ 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.
