Working Together

Working together is the key to success!  There are many ways to become engaged in management of Hiawatha National Forest.  Year after year we find working cooperatively with volunteers, partners and others allows the Forest to achieve many things beyond what would otherwise be possible.  Follow the links in the left-hand menu to learn more about volunteering, partnerships, contracting, grants, advisory committees, and tribal relations.


Hiawatha Resource Advisory Committee

A current call for project proposals is out running from January 12 – February 12, 2021. 

Comprehensive Trails Analysis

The Forest Service is interested in a comprehensive trails analysis of the Hiawatha National Forest's trails system. A Trails Working Group (TWG) is to be established on each of the forest's zone. We are inviting interested parties and representatives from the various trails activity groups to participate with us, providing information and ideas about potential updates to the Forest's trail systems.  It is our goal that through participation in these efforts we will be able to improve connectivity, sustainability, and the user experience across the Hiawatha National Forest trails system.

If you are interested in participating in the TWG, please reach out to one of the contacts identified on the page.
