The Kanawha State Forest Foundation is a volunteer non-profit organization created over 30 years ago with a mission to protect, promote, and preserve Kanawha State Forest. The KSFF currently has about 150 members of diverse interests and backgrounds committed to this common cause. The Foundation strives to advance the goals of its constituents as well as the Forest administration and Department of Natural Resources. This effort is always in the context of remaining true to the vision of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) which originally built the historic structures of Kanawha State Forest. The Foundation also serves as a conduit for public donations or funds directed toward further enhancing or developing the Forest. Thank you for your interest in the KSFF and we invite you to join us today.
