Making a Positive Difference for The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Areaphoto

The National Forest Foundation's Forest Stewardship Fund gives guests an easy way to be stewards of our amazing public lands. Throughout the country, when you stay at participating lodges, you may voluntarily contribute $1 per room night to the Forest Stewardship Fund, to enhance the National Forest or Scenic Area adjacent to where the funds are collected. The National Forest Foundation, the participating business and the local Forest Service work together to invest the funds in on-the-ground conservation projects, conducted through local non-profit partners.  Projects include those that improve wildlife habitat, enrich streams, restore native plants, and improve recreational experiences. 

Click here to see a list of recent projects funded by your donations.  For more information about the fund, please visit the National Forest Foundation's website or contact Greg Peters at gpeters@nationalforests.org or (406) 830-3361.
