Forest Mismanagement

May 12, 2017, Santa Fe New Mexican

The purpose of the U.S. Forest Service is to manage public land for us, the taxpayer residents of Santa Fe. We are not being served by the Forest Service when its workers continue to destroy what they are charged with protecting. If you would like to be more involved in decisions being made by the Forest Service, call your local, state and federal officials to insist on more public notification and involvement. Please request an environmental impact statement for the Santa Fe Fireshed project, a tree-clearing project using extreme thinning and burning on approximately 100,000 acres above Santa Fe.
