Now is the time to protect our cherished forest. The draft environmental assessment for the Santa Fe Mountains Landscape Resiliency Project has been released. The Forest Service intends to clear the vast majority of trees from large tracts of forest right outside of Santa Fe, and to burn most of the project area. We need the trees!

EPrescribed burn smoke is highly detrimental to our health. We would be breathing much more smoke as our local forest is burned repeatedly. This is in addition to pollution from other fuel treatment projects, and from wildfires.

The Forest Service is holding an official comment period through October 29th. It’s time to speak up and submit comments! We will provide tips on writing effective comments.

Dominick will talk about what genuinely protects us from fire and promotes the health of our forest, why the treatments proposed in the draft environmental assessment may do more harm than good, and why the comprehensive analysis provided by an Environmental Impact Statement is required before the project commences.

Come, and be for the forest, for our community, and for our health.

Please register for the event here. It is free and open to the public.
