The Trees Know What You Did Last Summer

You’re guilty—they saw you having fun camping, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting and more!

Besides supplying half of our nation’s water, offering jobs to millions of wood products workers, and providing habitat to thousands of critters, America’s forests also generate $15 billion a year in recreation dollars.

In 2011, nearly 166 million people visited a National Forest, which supported more than 200,000 full-and part-time jobs in local communities.

So get out there and do your job—have fun in the forest this fall!

Check out these stories from some of our staff members and their summer adventures among the trees, and learn more about how the Conservancy protects America's forests.
