Carson National Forest has released its draft management plan and draft Environmental Impact Statement. Unfortunately, it does not do nearly enough to protect New Mexico's wildlands, wildlife, water, and cultural heritage.
Tell the U.S. Forest Service that you want to see more recommended wilderness areas and more consideration for wildlife and the environment in their management plan.
A coalition of groups has proposed a 120,000-acre expansion of the Pecos Wilderness and a 5,240-acre addition to the Cruces Basin Wilderness.
The Pecos Wilderness spans across both the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests and provides critical habitat for elk, deer, bear, turkey, Rocky Mountain Big Horn sheep and crucial fish species
The Cruces Basin Wilderness Area is a beloved destination for outdoor enthusiasts and is an important habitat for elk, deer, black bears, coyotes, and other wildlife species.
Please submit a comment to forest officials and tell them you want to see more recommended wilderness areas and more consideration for wildlife and the environment.
