Cabin Advocacy: A Community Approach

2019 NFH Annual Spring Conference
in San Diego, California

The Dana on Mission Bay• Friday & Saturday, May 3-4, 2019

NFH is a national advocate for cabin owners. But we're not alone. Our network includes local and regional groups in local forests throughout more than 20 states. We're engaged with every level of cabin community - your local cabin association, statewide associations, individuals and groups. We collaborate for the benefit of permit holders in the Recreation Residence program and for the benefit of the cabin program. For the health of forests themselves, we have a unique perspective as partners and stakeholders with the Forest Service.
