Cañon City District

Proudly Serving Custer, Fremont and Pueblo Counties

The Cañon City District of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is one of 16 districts and three field offices located throughout Colorado. We are a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU). The CSFS headquarters is located on the CSU Foothills Campus in Fort Collins.

Our mission is to achieve stewardship of Colorado's diverse forest environments for the benefit of present and future generations.

The Cañon City District delivers technical assistance to private landowners, municipal and county governments and agencies. The district is the silvicultural lessee for state trust lands in Pueblo, Fremont and Custer counties.

Our programs and services are varied but generally fall with the areas of forest management, wildfire mitigation, community forestry and education. We are staffed with two foresters and a half time administrative assistant. We also share our office with an inventory forester responsible for conducting the Forest Inventory and Analysis program in southeastern Colorado.
