Welcome to Discover Your Forest

Give Back to the Land we Love

At Discover Your Forest, we want you to do more than just visit your public lands. If you are one of the hundreds of thousands who seek refuge or recreation on rivers, forests, mountains or wetlands each year, we encourage you to find a way to give back to these places. The future of our National Forests depends on all of us working together to share the load, and find ways to be good stewards of the land that we love.
