BlueRibbon-Coalition-NEW-Logo-6-21-16Editor’s Note: The BlueRibbon Coalition sent over this note regarding the Santa Fe National Forest in New Mexico will be revising its forest plan and will host open houses. See the information below for details.

The Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) is revising its Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan), which will guide the management of all forest resources for the next 10 to 15 years. The Forest Service will be hosting a series of three Open House meetings through the end of the year.
