Forest of Friendship

Trying to think of a way to honor someone who has made a contribution to aviation? Has your chapter considered nominating someone for the Forest of Friendship? Located in Atchison, Kansas, the birthplace of Amelia Earhart, it is a growing memorial and testament to those who have helped make the dream of flight possible.

The focus this year at the Forest will be on Forests and Flying, paying special attention to those who help keep fires at bay, as well as patrol the skies above many of our majestic woodlands and national parks. Nominees’  flying does not have to fit into this criterion; anyone whom you feel has made a contribution to aviation is welcome.

For more information, forms, schedule of this year’s celebration, list of former nominees, directions, etc. please visit the Forest’s website at

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, as well. The deadline for all applications is April 15 (taxday–easy to remember!).
