Thor reaffirms commitment to National Forest Foundation

Leading RV manufacturer THOR Industries has reaffirmed its commitment to preserving the National Forests and Grasslands of the United States as outdoor recreation in public lands continues to grow at unprecedented levels. THOR has pledged an additional three-year commitment to the National Forest Foundation (NFF) in the US, an investment which will help improve the health and accessibility of the nation’s 193-million-acre national forest system.

"The National Forest System offers unrivaled access to outdoor recreation," stated Bob Martin, THOR president and CEO. "The vitality of our National Forests is critical to our purpose of inspiring and empowering people to connect with nature to Go Everywhere. Stay Anywhere. We are more passionate than ever about our partnership with NFF and ensuring individuals and families have critical access to the healing power of nature for generations to come."

The National Forest Foundation is once again honoured to have the commitment of THOR to continue to help protect our invaluable public lands," said NFF President and CEO Mary Mitsos. "Their ongoing pledge is crucial to the health of the forest system that millions of outdoor enthusiasts travel to and through every year. We're excited about this partnership and look forward to making lasting change for decades to come."

National Forests and Grasslands cover over eight percent of the nation's land, and offer more than 33,000 RV-accessible campsites and countless other outdoor recreational activities, including 148,000 miles of dog-friendly trails, 4,400 miles of rivers, endless RV boondocking, and sought-after ski areas such as Vail Mountain Resort, Telluride Ski Resort, Breckenridge and Mt. Baker Ski Area. According to the NFF, use of the forest system consistently increases as individuals and families discover the healing power of nature, remote work and education trends continue, and campgrounds, state and national parks experience record volumes of visitors.
