Join FDRD Today

FDRD’s programs are provided as a public service and we rely on individual contributions to support our organization in ways that restricted grants do not. Without your generous contributions, we simply wouldn’t be able to take care of this place we love.

Please consider helping FDRD continue our forest stewardship efforts by becoming a member. Increasing membership numbers also shows our grant funders and citizens of Summit County that FDRD continues to grow as a strong organization, encouraging community stewardship of our beloved National Forest.

Thank you for supporting FDRD and our National Forest!

You don’t have to be a FDRD member to volunteer, nor do you have to be a volunteer to be a FDRD member – but the rewards are great when you do both!
