The Santa Fe Forest Coalition is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2017 to educate the public on issues pertaining to forest and wildlife preservation on New Mexicos public and private lands. We are a coalition of organizations and individuals united in calling for a comprehensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) be completed prior to any tree cutting and burning on forested public lands above Santa Fe. This environmental review must: first, recognize the lawful right of citizens to be fully informed participants in managing their lands; second, must evaluate a full range of alternatives, including those based on scientific opinion opposed to extensive vegetation clearing; and third disclose and evaluate all cumulative impacts on air quality from prescribed burning, the effects of mechanical treatments on water quality, soils and wildlife including stream sedimentation, soil erosion, displacement of wildlife, habitat modification and the spread of invasive weed species.
