Proudly Serving Chaffee and Lake Counties
The Salida District of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is one of 17 districts located throughout Colorado. We are a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU). Our 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.
At the Salida District we fill a variety of technical roles for private landowners and communities in both forest and urban settings, coordinate our efforts with natural resource agencies, and help manage forested sections of state land. Our desire is to help people be good stewards of the land they live on.
