American Evergreen Foundation established in 1996 is a nonpolitical organization that focuses on environmental/conservation education and bringing people and communities together in positive “Conservation Through Participation” grassroots projects.
AEF provides people and communities nationwide an opportunity to learn about the environment that surrounds us through hands-on opportunities, in the classroom (k-6th grade) environmental education, and environmental conservation educational television programming.
AEF works together with federal, state, county and city agencies as well as private landowners on important environmental projects.
For nearly a century the United States Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) National Park Service (NPS) and other federal, state and local agencies have been providing outstanding leadership in the protection and management of our forests and open lands. However; With devastating forest fires, floods, population growth, coupled with state and federal cutbacks. The American Evergreen Foundation feels it’s time to step up and provide quality environmental/conservation education, and opportunities for the citizens of this nation to participate to help meet the ever growing demands on our forests and open lands
“Let’s remember our forests and open lands provide us with the necessities of life as well as many extras. These lands provide safe refuge for wildlife, clean water to drink, clean air to breath, wood products, minerals, oils, gas and medicines. We use these lands for camping, hiking, skiing, fishing, hunting, and other recreations. Our environment does it all, whether we are using natural resources, or enjoying exciting outdoor activities, savoring beautiful scenery or resting in a quiet place reflecting on nature’s majesty”.
Join us in this noble endeavor; Together we can educate and help preserve these lands for the enjoyment and resources they give us for generations to come.
