We need your help!
The Cleveland National Forest Foundation (CNFF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to progressive land use and transportation planning as a means of protecting vital natural resources. Currently, CNFF is focusing the majority of its efforts on transportation and land use planning efforts in San Diego County, and working to ensure that planning efforts are completed in a way that optimizes regional sustainability and enhances quality of life for all of the region's residents.
CNFF was founded in 1995 with the purpose of protecting and preserving the Cleveland National Forest, with particular emphasis on the portion of the forest that lies within San Diego County. CNFF maintains its original mission of protecting and preserving the forest and its natural resources, but has come to recognize that what threatens the forest and its resources is not just direct development or overuse, but rather complex regional planning issues. Therefore, to fulfill our mission of preserving the forest and its natural resources, CNFF believes it is essential to be involved with local legislative planning initiatives. By addressing the causes of forest-related degradation, CNFF intends to also engage larger regional issues such as housing, employment, energy, climate change, air quality, water quality and supply, and mobility that directly impact the quality of life of all San Diego residents.
