What is the Kanawha State Forest Foundation?

The Kanawha State  Forest Foundation is a volunteer non-profit organization created over 20 years ago with a mission to protect, promote, and preserve Kanawha State Forest. The KSFF currently has about 150 members of diverse interests and backgrounds committed to this common cause. The Foundation strives to advance the goals of its constituents as well as the Forest administration and Department of Natural Resources. This effort is always in the context of remaining true to the vision of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) which originally built  the historic structures of Kanawha State Forest. The Foundation also serves as a conduit for public donations or funds directed toward further improving or developing the Forest.  Thank you for your interest in the KSFF and we invite you to join us today.

More Information About the Kanawha State Forest Foundation:

A KSFF board member once proclaimed, “We are a motley crew of people who love the forest.”

Her words were intended to characterize the diverse backgrounds of the volunteers who belong to the Kanawha Sate Forest Foundation.

The focus is on participation and dedication to Kanawha State Forest, regardless of background, training, or other experience.
The essential requirement is a passion for preserving and enhancing the forest as a resource for relaxation and enjoyment of nature.
