“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness." – John Muir

And into the forest I go to lose my mind and find my soul. Our National Forests are not only the backbone of green that fill maps of the United States, but they also are the heart and soul of our public lands. Often more accessible than our National and State Parks, National Forests are commonly the dark horse star of the show in our love affair with wild places. Home to elusive wilderness, a vector for unmatched recreation in both winter and summer, and refuge for wildlife and the like, our forests are certainly more than what meets the eye.

Frequently overshadowed by its brethren in the Department of Interior, the National Forest Service is tasked with a multiple use mandate. While our National Parks principally strive for preservation, National Forests are managed for many purposes, including but not limited too, ensuring they continue to provide sustainable yields of renewable resources such as water, forage, wildlife, timber, and outdoor recreation. The balance between conservation and industry, our National Forests are at the heart of the American story.  

Given their importance and our affinity for those green spaces on the map, we are equally 4 the Forests as we are 4 the Parks. Our Forests need equal attention and support as our Parks. We've made it a priority to represent such through our wild tribute. Smokey the Bear is a national icon and son of the National Forest Service. Our Smokey Bear Collection is licensed accordingly, thus compounding the impact made by our donations to organizations that support our forests. Similarly, given the intrinsic relationship of winter recreation (e.g., skiing) on National Forest land, our Winter Collection directly supports our 4 the Forests initiatives. 

Join us in our commitment to our National Forests and keep an eye out for upcoming projects we lead to support the well-being of 193 million acres of equally critical and spectacular wildlands.
