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 Gunnison and Hinsdale counties

The Gunnison Field Office of the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) is one of 18 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 Colorado State Forest Service offers technical assistance and information to private landowners and homeowners interested in becoming good stewards of the natural resources on their land. We do not manage campgrounds, have jurisdiction over public lands or sell recreational licenses.
