Your community forest needs you!
Spectacular redwood forests on the north coast, leafy streets in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Fresno, and Redding, a beloved parkway in Chico, ponderosa pine, oak forests in the foothills...these represent only a few of the many forests in our state. California's forests are as diverse as its human population. Across the state, people find that protecting and enhancing their local forests enhances their communities.
Your community forest, be it a few trees or many, needs your attention. Join us to support forest stewardship in your community.
What is CCFF?
California Community Forests Foundation (CCFF) is a non-profit statewide organization formed in 1996 to support partners in California communities involved in environmental education and concerned about their local natural communities, especially forests.
We help seek and manage funds for projects and programs that educate Californians about stewardship of natural systems and resources.
California Community Forests Foundation partners with organizations, schools, and communities to promote the well-being of community forests and natural ecosystems through youth and adult environmental education and community-based conservation projects.
We are funding community-based projects that get "kids in the woods" including the Kids and California's Oaks grant program.
We are offering student scholarships for the 2014 Oak Symposium: Managing Oak Woodlands in a Dynamic World to be held in Visalia on November 3-6. See guidelines to apply.
