The deep sandstone canyons, mountaintops, meadows, lakes, and streams of the Manti-La Sal National Forest create a diverse landscape.  From the Abajos and La Sals in southeastern Utah to the Wasatch Plateau and Sanpitch mountains hundreds of miles away in central Utah, the Forest is a welcome retreat.

Accelerating Restoration

/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd480868.pdfLarge areas of National Forest System land are at risk from the effects of a changing climate, including catastrophic wildfire, insect and disease, and other stressors. The potential restoration treatment needs on these lands are between 65 million to 82 million acres. 

Restoration of diverse landscapes nationwide is critical to maintaining and enhancing the functions needed from productive, resilient forests and grasslands to support thriving communities and economies. 

Restoration helps to ensure that forests and grasslands continue to provide the goods and services that Americans want and need, including clean air and water, wood products, energy, recreation opportunities, carbon management, and fish and wildlife habitat.

The Manti-La Sal National Forest has issued a new closure order for the Seeley Fire Scar in the area of Huntington Canyon. Volunteers and Forest Service employees have reconstructed most trails and a rainy spring and summer have led to good regrowth of vegetation on slopes. Read the closure order here.  See the closure map here.
