National Forest Protection Alliance

In 1999 the National Forest Protection Alliance (NFPA) was formed, creating a unified democratic alliance among groups within the forest protection community. NFPA believes that informed groups and individuals, acting in a coordinated, strategic manner, can organize a strong base of public and political support to achieve positive, lasting social change and environmental protection.

Our mission is to end the industrial exploitation of all federal public lands, starting with commercial logging. We believe public lands should be managed to provide clean air and water, wilderness, wildlife habitat, and compatible recreation for the public – not subsidized lumber for the timber industry.

We seek to empower and engage citizens across the nation through our State Delegate system, which elects our Board of Directors at our annual convention. Our State Delegates represent the organized movement of individuals and organizations in each state who work to end commercial logging on public lands.
