Abstract

The USDA Forest Service was created in 1905 with a mission that continues to resonate and inspire our work today: "To sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation's forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations." Our emphasis on both land and people is summarized in our motto, "Caring for the land and serving people," in recognition of our civic service, the fundamental importance of nature to human health and well-being, and our desire to awaken and strengthen all people's connection to the land. "Caring for the land" represents our commitment to land conservation, restoration, and stewardship.
