Stanislaus National Forest
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests
Forest OverviewStanislaus National Forest covers close to 900,000 acres of the Sierra Nevada and is known as a recreation destination for thousands of visitors every year due to its proximity to the San Francisco Bay area.
Stanislaus National Forest Needs Our HelpThe Rim Fire, the largest wildfire in Sierra Nevada history, burned more than 250,000 acres of the forest as well as Yosemite National Park in the summer of 2013. The forest affects four major watersheds and seven reservoirs that supply close to 60% of the water to the Bay Area. It is imperative that we work together to restore forestland that will not regenerate on its own.
