Celebrate our incredible 193-million-acre National Forest System during National Forest Week -- an annual celebration of the National Forest System and all it provides and has to offer.
National Forest Week is celebrated the second full week of July each year and will take place July 11-17, 2022.
National Forest Week is celebrated across the country and there are so many ways to get involved! Here are a couple to get started:
- Post on social media with the hashtag #NationalForestWeek. National Forest Week wouldn’t happen without a community of supporters. Share your National Forest stories and experiences on social media with the hashtag #NationalForestWeek.
- Spread the word. Reach out to your friends and encourage them to join you in celebrating National Forest Week.
- Purchase artwork from National Park Posters. Proceeds from each purchase will support tree-replanting efforts in National Forests across the country.
As we explore our incredible National Forest System throughout the year, know that these special places rely on you. Be sure you recreate responsibly so that all users and future generations can continue to enjoy our National Forests.

Meet Rob Decker, Creator of National Park Posters
Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979 when he was just 19. It was an experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all our major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
"I feel it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too."
