Do you have a service project you would like to accomplish on a nearby national forest? BCHA continues to operate under a five-year Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) with the U.S. Forest Service related to trail maintenance and public education and outreach. We recommend you share a copy of the MOU with your local forest, this is not a very good copy but apparently the best they have. This copy is not signed but readable.
Many BCH chapters operate under a similar forest-specific service agreement, which often can be expedited if both parties are made aware of the national MOU. BCHA’s current MOU with the U.S. Forest Service is active to August 31st 2021. We maintain a similar agreement with the National Park Service and currently are in the process of renewing a 5-year MOU with the Bureau of Land Management.
