Due to a lapse in federal funding, this USDA website will not be actively updated. Once funding has been reestablished, online operations will continue. On-going operational updates will be posted here (https://www.fs.fed.us/shutdown) as we are able to provide them.




The ARP is among the top national forests and grasslands for recreational volunteers in the country. Volunteers have dedicated thousands of hours of service and accomplished projects to enhance recreational opportunities across the ARP, and their support greatly influences the work that is accomplished every year.  Partnerships with our volunteers and partners makes the ARP so successful.
