The Carson National Forest in northern New Mexico is again seeking public input on its travel-management plan. This is your last chance to let the Forest Service know what parts of the Jicarilla, El Rito, Tres Piedras, and Canjilon ranger districts are important to you and how valuable a quiet, healthy forest is. Threatened and endangered species need you to help protect the last remaining places they have to live. Please contact the Forest Service today and let them know that quiet recreation and species habitat must be protected during this travel-management planning process.
Urge the Forest Service to prepare an environmental impact statement or, at the very least, allow the public to comment on the final environmental analysis. The environmental review must address cumulative impacts, especially in the Jicarilla Ranger District, where oil and gas leasing has already compromised the environment.
