Proudly serving Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan counties

The Durango Field Office of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is one of 17 field offices in Colorado. We are a service and outreach agency of the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU). The CSFS state office is 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 Durango Field Office is staffed by four full-time foresters, a statewide marketing & utilization forester, an inventory forester responsible for conducting the Forest Inventory and Analysis Program in southwestern Colorado, and an administrative assistant.

Annual Forest Health Report Story Map

CSFS Forest Entomologist Dr. Dan West produces an Esri Story Map for the annual Forest Health Report, which tells the story of how data was collected to compile the report, and offers users an interactive way to find out about forest conditions in their area.
