Taking care of the Willamette National Forest requires the efforts of not only dedicated employees, but also many partners and volunteers who contribute to the successful management of forest resources as well as providing services to forest visitors like you.
Our partners 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, provide input to proposed management activities, conduct conservation education programs, and respond to emergency incidents.
Our partners include other federal agencies, the State of Oregon, conservation organizations, universities, public entities and private citizens. Their assistance is provided through a number of avenues including various grants, partnerships, advisory committees and volunteer efforts.
The importance of working together to manage all the natural resources grows every year. Partnerships and volunteers increase the Willamette National Forest’s stewardship capacity by connecting people within communities and meeting natural resource goals.
