"The Next Generation:
Honoring the Past,
Treasuring the Present, Shaping the Future"

2018 NFH Conference in Sacramento, CA
Saturday, April 28 - DoubleTree by Hilton

Are you thinking about the future of your cabin? Does your cabin story have a unique past you want the next generation to appreciate? Who will be responsible for your cabin and permit?

NFH wants to help our cabin community through some of the challenges of planning for the cabin's future, while embracing the unique history of these cabins. Our event will include opportunities to ask USFS staff questions, and to interact with new and long-time cabin owners. We'll talk about the future of your cabin and the program, from making repairs, to setting up trusts, tips on insurance and how together we can build advocacy skills for a  new generation.

Note: This is a one-day event.  To learn more and to preview our 2018 NFH Conference Program - click to view 2018 NFH Conference information.
