Mission Statement

To foster public understanding of forest ecosystems in California by providing balaced, science-based information on environmental, economic, and societal uses of forest resources for present and succeeding generations.


The Forest Foundation is a non-profit organization that strives to foster an understanding of the importance of forests and how they affect California’s environmental and economic health. California's forests have long been valued for their natural resources, wildlife, and recreation. About 75% of California's drinking water originates in forested watersheds, we rely on wood products from lumber to medicines, on a daily basis, and many industries rely on the forest for the recreational activities it naturally provides. Yet a majority of Californians have become disconnected from this valuable land. The Forest Foundation educates the present and next generation about forest ecosystems in California by providing free balanced, science-based programs and curriculum to K - 12 grade students throughout the state. We help bring the forests to the classroom. We have reached tens of thousands of students with our fee education programs and curriculum materials for K-12 classrooms and sponsor numerous programs about caring for forests. By sharing knowledge, we aim to protect water and air quality and ensure diverse wildlife while sustaining forests.
