Working Together

Trail Crew at work re-contructing a trailWorking together is crucial to managing national forest resources.

Restoring Olympic National Forest ecosystems to be more resilient provides multiple public benefits, such as increased carbon storage, improved air and water quality, and stronger community partnerships.

We collaborate with partners on projects to meet multiple goals and match mutual interests, coordinating and integrating restoration activities to improve terrestrial and aquatic habitat diversity across the peninsula.

For more information about partnerships with the Forest Service visit the Partnership Resource Center. Or contact a national forest representative.
