The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests are tasked with managing public lands brimming with natural resources and diverse wildlife. We work to protect at-risk species like the Mexican spotted owl and New Mexican jumping mouse, protect the Heber Wild Horse Territory, ensure forest health through safe logging practices, and restore critical ecosystems.
Wildfire risk remains. It is always illegal to leave a campfire unattended or use fireworks on National Forest land.
Participants receive training, qualifications to pursue careers as wildland firefighters
