Forest Funding

Properly funding America’s 155 national forests is a priority for The Wilderness Society. Without proper investment, our national forests will not be able to meet the challenges they face or provide the outdoor recreation opportunities people rely upon.

America’s national forests receive funding from a number of sources and for a number of projects. 

National Forest Service budget

Funding needed to secure clean drinking water, repair recreational trails and restore healthy forests depends on the annual federal budget appropriations process. 

Funding for restoration

Our national forests are damaged from decades of unsustainable logging, road building, fire suppression and urbanization. Restoration funding is critical keep our national forests standing tall for future generations.
