NFH Support with Ranger Disagreements
If I find myself in disagreement with the local Ranger on something, as a long-time member can I count on NFH coming to my support?

Dear Richard,

You can count on NFH to assist with information, contacts and other guidance when you run into problems. Typically, we want to empower our members with factual information to use in cases where a local ranger interprets the rules inconsistently and not in alignment with the special use permit and other forest rules. If the situation affects cabin owners more generally, we may step in and discuss with forest-level, regional or Washington Office contacts in the Forest Service.

At times, a local dispute may be so challenging that NFH would make a call to the ranger or forest supervisor, but we really feel strongly that empowering each permit holder and local tract association builds strength and relationship locally, which helps the entire program and permit-holders.

If you are currently having trouble, let us know and maybe we can assist.

All the Best,
Sharon Leach, NFH Executive Director
