Nature & Science

dragon fly resting on reedsThe Gila National Forest is host to a myriad of terrestrial and aquatic resources whose management has often been in conflict. As managers of 3.3 million acres our efforts are to integrate divergent views such as those associated with the management of fire, roads, and vegetation for improved management and conservation of native fish, wildlife, and plant species. Forest management relies on science to support informed management decisions and centers on creating and maintaining healthy ecosystems and communities.
