 Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnered with the US Forest Service to reforest areas within the Santa Fe National Forest damaged by wildfires. The Santa Fe National Forest was established in 1915 and is one of five national forests in New Mexico.

Reforesting the area will eventually increase habitat for mule deer, elk, turkey, black bear, mountain lion, bighorn sheep, and a variety of songbirds. The project also will help reduce erosion into nearby streams and lakes, improving water quality and habitat for aquatic species.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
