The National Forest Foundation, chartered by Congress, engages Americans in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the 193-million-acre National Forest System, administers private gifts of funds and land for the benefit of the National Forests. http://www.nationalforests.org/ The Forest Service manages a system of 155 national forests, 20 national grasslands, and 222 research and experimental forests, as well as other special areas, covering more than 192 million acres of public land. The Forest Service has evolved into a 30,000 employee agency that manages the national forests for a number of multiple uses, including recreation, timber, wilderness, minerals, water, grazing, fish, and wildlife.

Mission: The mission of the USDA 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 Forest Service motto, "Caring for the Land and Serving People," captures the spirit of our mission, which we accomplish through five main activities: Protection and management of natural resources on National Forest System lands. Research on all aspects of forestry, rangeland management, and forest resource utilization. Community assistance and cooperation with State and local governments, forest industries, and private landowners to help protect and manage non-Federal forest and associated range and watershed lands to improve conditions in rural areas. Achieving and supporting an effective workforce that reflects the full range of diversity of the American people. International assistance in formulating policy and coordinating U.S. support for the protection and sound management of the world's forest resources.

Please do NOT fly drones near wildfires! Know Before You Fly!

When drones are illegally flown over a fire, air operations can be suspended, and crews lose a valuable resource, which can adversely affect the safety and efficiency of the overall firefighting effort.

Law enforcement can take action against a private citizen or commercial business illegally flying drones over a wildfire. #FireYear2020 #ojodeloscasosfire #cibolanfng #nodronezone #knowbeforeyoufly

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), generally called drones, are gaining in popularity. Although drones are fun to fly, they can be deadly if flown near wildfires. Drones can interfere with wildland fire air traffic, such as air tankers, helicopters, and other firefighting aircraft that are necessary t...

Okay today is the 10th. Please update us on the progress of this fire. (Ojos) Please. Most of us work a long way from home with kids left at our homes due to the corona virus. We need frequent updates. Please so we can make alternative plans for our animals and kids if we need to. Please update for today before we leave our homes. Thank you in advanced.
Order Number 03-00-00-20-010, dated April 30, lists Cibola NF as having no developed recreation site closures. The webpage, however, has many. Could we have an update?

Anyone have any information on how and where I turn in YCC applications for the summer? I have a couple of boys who are interested and we can't seem to find a place to take our applications.
We are visiting from Florida and would love to know if the Capulin Snow Play Area is open? Thank you!
All Cibola National Forest and National Grasslands offices are open. Thanks to all employees, partners, and local communities for your support and patience during the government shutdown.
Any workers in the Grants area, if you need a bed or food, message me. Dinner is at 6, every night. All are welcome!
Is the sledding area open on Sandia peak?
Please provide any updates on the Capulin Snow Play Area opening. USDA FS website says "Capulin Snow Play Area will open later in the season provided an adequate amount of snow exists." The the Sandia Ranger District 505-281-3304 is closed due to the Fed Gov Furrow. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/cibola/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD486959 Thank you!
I’ll probably get lots of confrontation on this comment, but I really need to question the purpose of allowing motor bikes on ANY forest trails? This is a place of peace and quite, to enjoy nature, to hopefully see some wildlife, to smell the fresh pine and hear the wind though the trees... motorcycles on these trails just ruin the whole experience!!
Is the Capulin Snow Play Site open?
