Carson National Forest Changing Hours Amid Staffing Challenges

The Carson National Forest will temporarily change office hours at some locations to better serve the public amid low staffing. In-person services will include permit and map sales, as well as information services. Services will also be available over the phone on weekdays at all offices.

“We are making this adjustment to give clarity and consistency to our visiting public,” said Forest Supervisor James Duran. “As soon as positions are filled, I look forward to reopening offices back to five days a week.”

Hours at the El Rito Ranger Station will remain the same. All Forest office hours and contact information are listed online at http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/officehours. Visitors are encouraged to call ahead before visiting in case of unplanned closures, such as from sick leave.
