Our Mission:
This involves taking care of the land while making the forest resources available to all our share holders. Resources include high quality water, wilderness and outdoor recreation; quality habitat for many plants and animals; wood for paper, homes and hundreds of other uses; forage for wildlife and livestock; a source of minerals.

The Forest:
The Carson National Forest is one of five National Forests in New Mexico. The National Forests are America's Great outdoors, here to serve the American people at work and play! Some of the finest mountain scenery in the Southwest is found in the 1.5 million acres covered by the Carson National Forest. Elevations rise from 6,000 feet to 13,161 feet at Wheeler Peak, the highest in New Mexico. Our objective is to maintain that natural beauty.
