Partnerships are crucial to managing national forest resources and increasing our stewardship capacity by connecting people within communities and meeting mutual natural resource goals. Today, collaboration has become essential to fulfilling the Forest Service mission of “caring for the land and serving people”. The Forest Service works in partnership with public agencies, private organizations, Tribes, watershed groups, volunteer organizations, nonprofit organizations, schools, and individuals to manage national forest resources. These include water, fish, trees, soil, trails, roads, terrestrial habitats, invasive weeds, and more!


Multiple and dynamic partnerships between the Forest Service and other entities come in the form of agreements, grants, contracts, and volunteer commitments for specific projects or tasks needed to keep our forests healthy and active.
