Welcome! We are revising our existing Forest Plan, an important document that governs all of our management actions. We invite you to continue working with us to develop a new plan that promotes a healthy, diverse, and productive Santa Fe National Forest. Our goal is to remain inclusive and efficient as we move through the collaborative planning process.

Are you interested in or affected by the way that Santa Fe National Forest is managed?

We want to hear from you!
