- Santa Fe National Forest FINALLY Provides Documents Under FOIA
Last Updated: December 19, 2008
After 5 months, the Santa Fe National Forest has provided the documents we requested in our "Freedom of Information Act' request. The documents give us the details about the 'special' wildlife species that live in the forest. 'Mexican Spotted Owl,' and 'Jemez Mountain Salamander' might be unfamiliar creatures to you, but the Forest may try to close roads and trails to us because of them. Will it really affect the wildlife if we're on the roads and trails? Read about these animals in the documents, and think about whether motorized recreation has anything to do with their survival . Click on 'General Travel Management Plan Reference Documents' at the top of this page to see the documents. Some of the documents are currently too large to post but we break them up and post the pieces for you to read.
We will continue to gather and post documents of interest to the public engaged in the Travel Management Process on this page. Watch your 'Library' grow!
NOTE: Some of the information is relevant statewide, and some isn't. Mexican Spotted Owls live in other forests (notably the Lincoln), but the Jemez Mtn Salamander lives only in the Santa Fe National Forest. Some animals are federally listed species, others are just state-listed in New Mexico.
