Together, 59 men and women — called "state foresters" — lead the conservation and protection of forests across all 50 states, U.S territories, and the District of Columbia.
The National Association of State Foresters Foundation (NASFF) supports the work of our nation's state foresters and the forestry agencies they lead with proceeds from the State Foresters Store.
NASFF was established in 1983 to foster leadership among current and future members of the state forestry community. Its programs bring awareness to the forestry issues nationwide and world-class education to leaders in forestry.
Since 1999, NASFF has supported on-the-job experience for the college students through the James Hubbard Internship for Policy and Communications. Selected interns engage at the national level to influence the future of state and private forestry.
In partnership with the USDA Forest Service, NASFF offers state foresters and qualified agency staff the opportunity to participate in Harvard University's Executive Fellowship, a program hosted by the John F. Kennedy School of Government.
WE TELL THE STORY.
Each year, NASFF awards a photo fellowship to an aspiring photographer. The selected fellow traverses the country, capturing photos that help tell the compelling story of state and private forestry.
Any contribution to NASFF, big and small, makes a difference for our nation's forests and trees.
