To illustrate the value that the USFS places on its role to protect and restore the health of America’s aquatic resources, the Agency created a short film titled "Your Best Waters." This film portrays some of the objectives described in the USFS’s 2017 Rise to the Future: National Fish & Aquatic Strategy (Goal 1 under the Strategy includes components to address the invasive species issue across the entire National Forest System). The Agency will be working with partners to share this film over the coming months; please feel free to pass it along through your networks. To watch the film, click here.
