Fire Prevention Message

Poster of smokey pointing his finger at you; Only you can prevent wildfires. Fireworks and other pyrotechnic devices are prohibited on national forest lands year-round, regardless of weather conditions or holidays. The prohibition is directed at concerns over the potential for fire ignition associated with the use of fireworks on public lands. Campfires should always be attended to and be “dead out” before leaving the area. Care should be taken with all ignition sources: cigarettes, matches, dragging chains and vehicle parts, sparks from chainsaws, etc…

BLM, USFS Plans for Greater Sage-Grouse Protection

Sage-Grouse

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) released final environmental reviews for proposed land use plans that will help conserve greater sage-grouse habitat and support sustainable economic development on portions of public lands in 10 states across the West. The land management plans, developed during the past three years in partnership with the states and with input from local partners, will benefit wildlife, outdoor recreation, ranching and other traditional land uses that rely on a healthy sagebrush landscape.


Careers

The Forest Service employs more than 30,000 permanent employees in hundreds of locations across the country. Forest Service employees focus their skills to manage and improve our nation's forest lands in many ways. Many work in forest and range research, some develop the skills of others at our Job Corps Centers and others provide expertise in State and Private Forestry partnerships across the country. If you are as dedicated to advancing our mission as we are, you should seek job opportunites where your skills are competitive.
