Coconino National Forest Celebrates 100 Years
The year 2008 marked the 100th anniversary of the proclamation signed on July 2, 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt, consolidating all the San Francisco Mountains National Forest, parts of the Black Mesa and Tonto National Forest, all of the Grand Canyon National Forest south and east of the Colorado River, into the Coconino National Forest.
The Coconino National Forest is one of six National Forests in Arizona. This map shows seven forests, but the Apache and Sitgreaves are operated as one. National Forests are America's "Great Outdoors". There is a lot for people to enjoy... in a wide variety of ways.

Caring for the Land and Serving People
The US Forest Service is charged with the care of the nation's forests and rangelands. We serve the needs of the people of the nation, the owners of the forest. The Forest Service is a leader in conservation and cooperates with individual states to assist private landowners in applying good forest practices on their own lands. We are also involved in research to find better ways to manage the nation's natural resources.
