Contributing to NFH

We appreciate you. Whether you are an individual, a tract association or an event sponsor - your support makes a difference.  Everything we do is supported by member dues, but with additional support from donors, we strive continually to improve our benefits and sustain our mission protecting the cabin program.

If you are considering organizations to give to at this time of year, we hope you'll consider the only national organization standing up for the Recreation Residence program and a nation of cabin owners.

We've received a Gold rating from Guidestar, certifying transparency in non-profit organizations.

Forest Plans: 
The Role of Permit Holders

As of approximately 2012, all National Forests have been in the process of revising their Land Management Plans. 

Your forest may have completed the process, or may be taking comments as they get ready for finish up.

Read more about how you and/or your tract association might get involved in Forest Plans, how to advocate for the recreation residence program, and even see sample letters HERE.
