The National Smokejumper Association (NSA)  is a non-profit (501(c)(3)), American organization that preserves the history of Smokejumping through documented interviews, historical rosters, reunions, photographs, movies, letters, reports, personal memorabilia collections, and publications. It is an organization of former and present Smokejumpers involved with wildland firefighting and the preservation of National Forests and National Parks.  The NSA Trails Program was founded in 1999 to field volunteer crews to clear trails, restore historical structures, and build corrals and fences. Since 1999, the Trails Program has had over 250 weeklong projects averaging 8 to 10 volunteers per crew totaling nearly 2,500 weeks of volunteer time.  Funds raised tonight at KettleHouse Community UNite will help field projects that are increasingly underfunded due to budget cutbacks to the Federal Agencies.
