Three Forests Interpretive Association
Three-Forests Interpretive Association [3-FIA] is a non-profit educational
organization that helps visitors and users of the Sequoia, Sierra and
Stanislaus National Forests appreciate and understand the forests while
supporting the Forest Service with its mission to conserve these public lands for future generations.
Membership is open to anyone who has a desire and interest in advancing
the aims of the Association. All members receive our annual newsletter with project updates, activity listings and opportunities to participate. The greatest
benefit of being a member may be the gratification of knowing that you
are supporting programs to further the proper use and full enjoyment
of the SEQUOIA, SIERRA, and STANISLAUS National Forests.
All dues and contributions are tax deductible and members receiver 20% OFF on merchandise at any of our 20 stores located in National Forest Visitor Centers.
Founded by a diverse
cross section of forest users, 3-FIA seeks to enhance public understanding
of the history, natural resources, recreational and commercial uses
of the forests. We recognize that National Forests are being confronted
with ever growing and often conflicting demands on lands. We see
education as playing a key role in maintaining the long-term health
and diversity of the land as well as helping users respect and not sacrifice
their natural, cultural, and historic heritage.
Membership is an
important way to show continuing interest and have a role in
the future of these three National Forests and the about four million
acres of public land they cover. Most
of the 100-plus members of the 3FIA come from Central California but
the we have members from all over the country.You are invited to become
a member and share in the fulfillment of the Association's goals.
