 Join us and become a NAFSR member today, a national nonprofit membership organization that advocates and works for keeping our Public Lands in public hands, while being managed professionally and substantially for responsible use and enjoyment.

As an organization we endorse and embrace the multiple use mission of the USDA Forest Service. Our membership of predominately retired USDA FS employees from across the country are actively educating and advocating for policies, laws and regulations that help support the Forest Service to better meet it's trusted mission of being stewards of these magnificent public lands.

WE believe strongly in working with the agency, partners and elected officials to achieve and accomplish this mission.
