Resource Management

Resource Management

The mission of the Forest Service 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 GMUG National Forest is engaged in a wide range of projects implemented to better understand and enhance the natural resources of our forest. These projects include watershed protection and improvement, water qualities studies, wetlands restoration, range improvements, noxious weed control and eradication, soils inventories, fuel hazard reduction, fire suppression, cultural resource restoration and inventories, fish inventories and habitat improvements, and wildlife inventories and re-introductions. This page will continue to have updates and publications on current resource management projects.
