Cascade Forest Conservancy is a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect and sustain the forests, streams, wildlife and communities within Gifford Pinchot National Forest through conservation, education, and advocacy. Their offices are in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA but from April to November many of the staff spends their days in the national forest working to safeguard the beauty and wonders of Washington’s South Cascades for all to enjoy.

CFC are stewards of this landscape – their vision is one of a forest where wild places remain to capture imaginations and allow native plants and wildlife to thrive. To attain their vision, CFC works on a multitude of conservation and restoration projects throughout the national forest. Because they are a small organization, volunteers are pivotal to the success of the projects. CFC leads one-day and overnight volunteer experiences where participants get to explore the forest while helping with a variety of tasks like collecting scientific data, setting up wildlife cameras, observing different species habitat, and planting native tree species. For overnight trips, volunteers get to sleep beneath the stars at campgrounds in the GPNF. There is no experience necessary to participate and many trips are suitable for young adults. To learn more about the projects and trips, please visit the organization’s website.
