NFH Wants to Thank
our 2018 NFH Event Sponsors:

NFH events are labors of love. We appreciate everyone that contributes time, energy and other contributions.

With the help and support of dedicated volunteers, the commitment of our members throughout the National Forests and these generous donors, our events bring many benefits to the cabin community.

Want to Get Involved in
Your Forest Plan Revisions?

Recently, NFH heard from a cabin owner in the newly merged Custer-Gallatin National Forest.

We've seen some forest mergers over the years. A change of forest name can affect the Forest Plan Revision timeline, starting it earlier. All forests go through this plan process with public comments. 

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.

Donate to NFH, a Guidestar-certified
non-profit organization.

We are a 501c4 membership association, and while your donation is not tax-deductible, every dollar is spent to advocate for recreation residence permit holders on our national forests.

Did You Know?
