National Forests News

tree-mail™ — June 2009

Dear Cherrie,

With 155 National Forests and 20 Grasslands in 42 states and Puerto Rico to choose from, an exciting and inexpensive summer vacation is not too distant for most Americans. As the kids wrap up with school and the weather warms up, check out the Forest Service web site for more information about vacationing on a National Forest near you. From tent camping to backcountry cabins, whitewater rafting to pack trips on horses and mules, a National Forest vacation is a great way to keep the costs down while supporting local communities. Happy trails!
Shooters Take Aim to Protect our National Forests

The National Forest Foundation’s 15th Annual Sporting Clays Invitational was a great success! Sponsored by the Remington Outdoor Foundation, this year’s two-day event began with a cocktail party and live auction at the GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford Hills, N.Y., on May 8, where guests had the chance to bid on a diverse selection of exciting items. Smokey Bear greeted attendees and wildlife expert Jim Fowler shared some of his fascinating wildlife stories with the crowd—assisted by several owls, two gibbons and a young kangaroo.

On Saturday, May 9, nearly 200 individuals gathered for the annual team sporting clays event at the Pawling Mountain Club in Pawling, N.Y. Awards were given to the top three teams—led this year by the Camp Fire Club team, with second-place going to the Verizon Business team. Individual shooters also tested their accuracy in the Rolex Betteridge Challenge—where the best score earned one lucky shooter a very special Rolex watch.

This annual event helps the NFF meet critical fundraising goals—but it also gives a very enthusiastic and generous crowd an opportunity to learn more about the forests they love and give back while having some fun. Next year’s shoot is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 8.
