Silent Auction

Attention State Foresters, Sponsors and Exhibitors… Don’t forget the Silent Auction!

Take the opportunity to showcase your state’s finest “made in” products and help us give back to the community.

The National Association of State Foresters' Foundation (NASFF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 1983 by the members of the National Association of State Foresters to promote and advance state and private forestry in the United States. NASFF supports educational initiatives that foster leadership for current and future members of the state forestry community. NASFF also provides a limited number of grants that are restricted to state forestry agencies, NASF, and allied interests. Projects supported by the Foundation further the recognition of state forestry agency leadership in promoting healthy, well-managed forests.
