The Stanley Ranger Station is currently closed to the public.  The Ranger Station is undergoing much needed repairs to the office.  Employees are working remotely from other offices on the Sawtooth National Recreation Area and the public is encouraged to contact the Sawtooth NRA headquarters office at 208-727-5000.  It is expected that the office will re-open on or about February 20, 2019.

The mission of the Forest Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations. The agency manages 193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private landowners and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the world. Public lands the Forest Service manages contribute more than $13 billion to the economy each year through visitor spending alone. Those same lands provide 30 percent of the nation’s surface drinking water to cities and rural communities and approximately 66 million Americans rely on drinking water that originated from the National Forest System.  The agency also has either a direct or indirect role in stewardship of about 900 million forested acres within the U.S., of which over 130 million acres are urban forests where most Americans live.)
