The number, size, and impact of fires on our Federal Forests over the last several years has aroused the public’s interest, concern, and desire for answers related to the causes and prevention of these increasing fire events. 

Education on all age levels and across all demographics is the key to motivating those responsible for the management of our Federal Forests to enact more effective and efficient policies regarding the various issues related to fire on our Federal Forest lands. 

CHF is dedicated and committed to the challenge of providing scientifically sound information and data regarding the causes, impacts, and solutions to all aspects of fire on Federal Forest land. 

CHF sponsors tree planting projects for all school age children, forest tours for all members of our community, and participates in a wide variety of public forums. 

CHF is a supporting sponsor of the FFA organization and participated in establishing the Forestry program at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
