Forest Service Planning

The Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) will continue to host Open Houses to give the public the opportunity to talk with Forest Service specialists about the Forest Plan under revision. 

There will be no presentation or agenda prepared for the Open Houses. They are instead an informal opportunity for you to ask questions and for us to share information and pre-draft material about the revision of the Forest Plan, the comprehensive document that will guide management of all forest resources for 10 to 15 years. Open Houses are good opportunities to get a preview of documents as they are developed and prior to their release and formal comment period.

This is a chance to share the progress made since the public meetings on Forest Plan Alternatives and Management Areas in March 2017. In previous Open Houses, table topics focused on resource areas, but the upcoming Open Houses will focus on planning topics including Alternatives, Geographic Areas, Management Areas, Monitoring, Wilderness, and Wild and Scenic Rivers. Forest Plan and District specialists will be available to answer questions on resource areas or Forest Planning more generally. Below is the Open House schedule for fall 2018:
