Taking care of the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest requires the efforts of not only dedicated employees, but many partners and volunteers who contribute to the successful management of forest resources as well as providing services to forest visitors like you.
Our partners help maintain recreation sites and trails, reduce hazardous fuels, restore watersheds, monitor wildlife populations, improve wildlife and fisheries habitat, inventory and monitor archeological and historic sites, provide input to proposed management activities, conduct conservation education programs, and respond to emergency incidents.
Our partners include other federal agencies, the State of Washington, conservation organizations, universities, public entities and private citizens. Their assistance is provided through a number of avenues including various grants, partnerships, advisory committees, and volunteer efforts.
The importance of working together to manage all the natural resources grows every year. Partnerships and volunteers increase the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest’s stewardship capacity by connecting people within communities and meeting natural resource goals.
This section tells that story and provides opportunities and ways to work together!
