It takes all of us, working together, to make our forests more resilient and our communities safer from wildfire.
Severe wildfires and persistent smoke are a threat to the lives and livelihoods of our communities. We offer a science-based, practical, long-term approach to forest management, informed by millennia of indigenous knowledge and best science. Our work is rooted in the belief that the connections that tie all of us to the forest are more powerful than our differences.
Who is RFP?
The Rogue Forest Partners (RFP) are a group of four nonprofits and six public agencies working as one for the communities and forests of the Rogue Basin.
We convene experts in forestry, hydrology, public lands, wildlife, conservation, fire use, timber industry, and the traditional ecological knowledge of indigenous peoples.
Our solution for the dry forests of southern Oregon: ecological forestry
We convene experts in natural and cultural resources including forestry, public lands, wildlife, conservation, fire use, and indigenous fire to develop projects to restore the health of southern Oregon forests. Our solutions include ecological thinning, planned burning, and other restoration activities that make forests—and the communities that rely on them—more resilient.
We work with diverse partners who are vested in Rogue Basin forests and encourage co-investment and co-management to achieve mutual goals. It’s a collaborative, transparent approach that empowers people from all walks of life, communities, organizations, and businesses to play an active role in shaping the forests of the future.
We engage with landowners, conservationists, businesses, tribal leaders, elected officials and others with an interest in Rogue Basin forests.
Healthier forests mean healthy communities.
