Inspiring Youth & Conserving Forests

Through our Forest Stewards Youth Corps, we put young people to work protecting, restoring, and enhancing America’s great outdoors. We provide career training in natural resources for 16-25 year olds from areas that have few employment opportunities. Through training from Guild staff and our partners and hard work on the ground, our crewmembers develop important outdoor skills in forest management, fire ecology, watershed health, and wildlife ecology.  Help us expand our program and inspire even more youth!

Putting the Forest First

From Humboldt County, California, to Aroostook County, Maine, we are the stewards for America’s finest forests.

We invite you to join us.

From our beginnings over thirty years ago, the Forest Stewards Guild has recognized that maintaining healthy, productive forests is the best investment we can make in promoting the wellbeing of people and forest communities. Our work includes hands-on forest stewardship, education and training, research, policy advocacy, and promoting professional practice – all based on high ethical standards and our unique mission of “putting the forest first.”
