American Forests is partnering the USDA Forest Service to restore parts of the Cibola National Forest that were damaged by wildfires in 2007 and 2008. This project will help to restore the Mexican spotted owl’s habitat. This avian predator (Strix occidentalis lucida) lives in areas of old-growth forests that are now damaged by fire and logging.

This project will also benefit the surrounding communities on the eastern slopes of the Manzano Mountains. This restoration project aims to increase the scenic value of the area, which is situated in a highly visible location along Interstate 40, and protect the watershed, that provides drinking water for the local communities.
