All Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests offices are operating virtually until further notice. This means most employees are teleworking and we are no longer doing any business in person. To protect the health and safety of our employees and customers, we are not scheduling face-to-face meetings at our offices.

However, continuing our service to you during this time is very important. Our regular office receptionists are either operating with new phone numbers, or regularly calling in to check the voicemails at our offices.


Until further notice, please contact the following phone numbers to reach your local Forest Service office:
