Eldorado Business Plan

Since it was first established by an act of Congress in 1910, the Eldorado National Forest has been inextricably linked with the lives of many people – from those who live and work on the Forest, to those who come to the Forest for recreational purposes. This business plan tells the story of the Eldorado National Forest by describing its connection with these stakeholders. It also describes the range of operational activities performed within the Forest, the resources currently used, and the resources required to perform activities to an optimal standard. This business plan provides a number of carefully considered strategies and investment priorities aimed at closing current funding gaps.
