Our Forest Futures campaign will ensure healthy forests today, tomorrow, and forever— to unlock the innovation and resources that hold the potential to solve our communities’ underlying forest restoration and management issues. We have a responsibility to join together to implement progressive solutions to ensure forest health for generations to come.
Forest Futures will identify, build, accelerate, and scale the solutions we need; setting in motion a series of projects, initiatives and funding mechanisms to achieve these essential goals. Take a look at our Impact Strategy and learn how we got here through our Position Paper.

Forest Futures Salons
Our Forest Futures Salons are tailored to build community engagement and awareness on the challenges with forest health in our region and the collaborative action that is taking place. In our upcoming Salons, we’ll explore what happens when fire hits our forests, how decisions are made and fires are fought, and what happens to the landscape after a fire. We will highlight the work being done right here in our region, including fuel reduction, restoration and wood innovation projects, all of which aim to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires.
Join us in acting on behalf of Tahoe’s forests and all those who depend on them. Join us to build a new kind of ecosystem—an ecosystem of people, ideas, solutions and investment—that will give us the means to protect and restore the most valuable ecosystem of all: our forests.
