Working Together

Managing a national forest as large and varied as the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest requires the efforts of not only dedicated employees, but a great many partners and volunteers who contribute their time and talents to the successful management of forest resources.

Our cooperators 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, and conduct conservation education programs. Collaboration has become essential to fulfilling the Forest Service mission of “Caring for the land and serving people”.

Our partners include a number of federal agencies, tribes, towns, counties, State of Wisconsin, conservation organizations, universities, non-profit organizations, neighboring landowners and private citizens. Their assistance is provided through a number of avenues including various grants, partnerships, and volunteer efforts.
