Volunteer with NFH

Would you like to give back to the cabin program?

NFH depends on volunteer cabin owners to support our mission and be part of our team preserving the cabin program and standing strong for permit holders. Your experience as a permit-holder is incredibly valuable to us! We're looking for new individuals to join one of our committees. Here is a list of the NFH committees you might be consider.

We're especially interested in those who have financial skills to join our Finance Committee, as well as technology-savvy people to join our Technology Committee. Other opportunities include becoming an outreach communicator for your tract, forest or state.

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.
