Friends of the Forest® Day is a volunteer opportunity that invites families to take care of Oregon's outdoor treasures, our National Forests. The goal of Friends of the Forest Day is to create a positive experience for volunteers, improving heavily used National Forest sites while deepening citizen commitment to the value of forests for current and future generations. The National Forest Foundation (NFF) is bringing volunteers unforgettable hands-on forest stewardship experiences in special places with volunteer work that is fun, family-friendly and has tangible benefits. The work of Friends of the Forest Day volunteers is focused on enhancing the natural and recreation resources of our National Forests. Volunteers build trails, restore trails and campgrounds, plant trees and remove invasive species. Projects take place in National Forest locations that are close to population centers and at sites that are favorites of the visiting public. The volunteers are provided with lunch. Over lunch, they hear a short talk about something special at that site, leaving them with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the conservation and historic values of these treasured lands.
