Our Mission: Achieve Stewardship of Colorado's environment through forestry outreach and service.

The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is an organization of active support, rather than a regulatory agency. In recent years, because of rapid population growth, increasing demands for "wild" lands, and growing public interest, CSFS has developed a more holistic approach toward the management of Colorado's natural resources. By taking a stewardship role, CSFS encourages landowners to meet their individual objectives and maintain or improve the overall resource condition while considering all values.

Colorado State Forest Service offers technical assistance and information to private landowners who desire to be good stewards of their land. We do not manage campgrounds, have jurisdiction over public lands, or sell recreational licenses. For National Park information, contact Curecanti National Recreation Area at 970-641-0406. For other public lands information, contact the Gunnison National Forest and Bureau of Land Management at 970-641-0471. For hunting and fishing information, contact the Colorado Division of Wildlife at 970-641-0088.

The Gunnison District is one of 24 CSFS offices located throughout Colorado. As a division of Colorado State University, our headquarters are located on the Fort Collins campus.

Our technical assistance and services are divided into five program areas:
  Conservation Education
Fire Management
Forest Management
Seedling Tree Program
Community Forestry
Employment, Volunteers, Internships
