Our 4% donations went toward the National Forest Foundation's California Initiatives including Restoring Tahoe Headlands and the Southern California Forest Fund.
Working closely with local communities, the National Forest Foundation is supporting healthy forests, sustainable recreation and clean water on the Tahoe National Forest and the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit.
With the Truckee River draining Lake Tahoe and running east and the American and Yuba Rivers running west, the Tahoe Headwaters provide drinking water to nearly 12 million people and support thousands of acres of farmland in Nevada and California. Myriad lakes, canyons, and peaks – including the Granite Chief Wilderness, Tahoe Rim Trail, and a section of the Pacific Crest Trail – attract over 24 million annual visitors, including hikers, hunters, anglers, bikers, off-highway-vehicle enthusiasts, skiers and climbers.
The National Forest Foundation established the Southern California Forest Fund to restore the health and vitality of Southern California’s National Forests – the Cleveland, San Bernardino, Los Padres, and Angeles National Forests.
These cherished landscapes continue to be threatened by wildfires, invasive pests, and droughts. Without continued support and restoration, we risk the health of local forests and watersheds, and the loss of recreation opportunities across Southern California.
