Reserve, NM, August 30, 2017—For Immediate Release.  Working for the Gila National Forest means we work, live, and play in our surrounding communities. This is best demonstrated by our hard working employees like the folks who call the Reserve Ranger District home.

Catron County, NM has been holding a county fair for 62 years. That’s a long tradition of showing animals, rodeos, parades, good food and dances. Reserve Ranger District personnel, to include Arden Ward, Karlen Ward, Bryan Delgado, Franky Chavez, Colleen Nichols, Skip Price, Benny Benavirez, Yolanda De La O, Marc Estrada, Kerry Baca, Joe Aragon, Shilow Norton, and Ramon Vallejos showed up early last Thursday and Friday to prepare and serve pancakes for fair attendees. Kudos to these folks for putting in the extra time to contribute to their community.
