The House of Representatives has passed a bill to ensure the National Forest Foundation (NFF) will continue to have the resources it needs to enhance and protect national forests and grasslands. The bill now heads to the president’s desk to be signed. The NFF is a nonprofit partner of the U.S. Forest Service, created in 1992, that uses public and private funds to help communities play an active role in maintaining and adding value to their national forests. The foundation has supported a number of projects throughout Colorado, including work by youth Conservation Corps crews to restore trails and recreational areas after the devastating flood in 2013.
