All CSFS field offices are closed until further notice. CSFS personnel are working remotely and remain available to assist partners and the public in ways that align with local, state and national health guidelines in response to COVID-19. Staff is regularly checking office phones and email, so members of the public may still seek assistance by contacting their local field office via phone and email.

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.
