American Forests Events

Bridger-Teton National Forest

American Forests is proud of the forest ecosystems we’ve been able to protect and preserve through the generosity of our members. We are excited to offer exclusive opportunities for our members to see this work firsthand through private tours and other experiences.

Our Walkabout program is generally free to members and their guests and provides a few hours of experiencing a forest in a way you may never have before that day. American Forests Forestscapes are educational opportunities for our members to explore and learn more about forests around the world from the experts that know the areas best. All of our events take place in a wide variety of locations: from the urban forests of cities like Dallas and New York to remote areas like Bridger-Teton National Forest and Michoacán, México.

Below you will find information on all future events that American Forests is currently planning. We hope you will join us in experiencing these unique and important environments.

Volunteer Events

These adventures are single-day or multi-day (optional) events to get you out into our nation’s forests. This is your opportunity to help American Forests restore iconic landscapes. These complimentary events are a benefit of membership with American Forests. Not a member? Join us today!

Rocky Mountains: Big Sky, Mont., Regeneration Assessment — September 2 & 3, 2015

Grab your hiking boots and join American Forests in the endangered western forests to survey whitebark pine! Volunteers will work with members of the Montana Department of Natural Resources to view the whitebark pine mortality from widespread mountain pine beetle activity and ongoing white pine blister rust infection. Volunteers will be assessing the germination and survival of some of the 8,000 whitebark pine seeds that were planted by volunteers in 2014. Watch out for grizzly bears! Volunteers are welcome to join American Forests for a single day or both days.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, August 26, 2014.
