Working Together

Tree with gears for leaves.

The mission of the Forest Service is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations.

The importance of working together to manage all the natural resources grows every year. Working with various individuals, groups and organizations that want to be involved in public land management is critical to provide the setting and products available in the Sierra National Forest.

The U.S. Forest Service works in partnership with public agencies, private organizations, tribes, watershed groups, volunteer organizations, nonprofit organizations, schools, and individuals to manage national forest resources. These include water, fish, trees, soil, recreation facilities, roads, terrestrial habitats, invasive weeds, and more!

Multiple and dynamic partnerships between the Forest Service and other entities come in the form of agreements, grants, contracts, and volunteer commitments for specific projects or tasks needed to keep our forest healthy and active.
