An Interpretive Guide to the Sierra, Stanislaus
& Sequoia National Forests



Three-Forests Interpretive Association [3-FIA] is a non-profit educational organization that helps to inform and educate visitors and users of the:

Our goal is to aid in promoting an appreciation and understanding of these forests, and to assist the US Forest Service in its mission to conserve these public lands.

We publish and distribute books, brochures, maps and other materials relating to the human and natural history of the Sierra Nevada. Profits from these activities are used to help the Forest Service fund a wide range of interpretive and educational programs, contributing to the public's appropriate use, understanding, and enjoyment of these precious resources.

We believe that an informed public can aid in the conservation mission of the Forest Service. Those who understand the mission are more likely to help further those mandates so that future generations can enjoy the benefits of this priceless heritage.
