Wildfire destroys habitat for all living things.


This forest burned in the Capitan Mountains Peppin Fire in 2004.  How long will we have to wait for the forest to come back?

CAUTION!  Wildfires pose a very serious threat to Lincoln National Forest.  Campfires should never be left unattended.
  Cigarette ashes with sparks can also start fires.  When dry conditions occur, campfires and smoking may be restricted to designated areas.
During extremely dry times, certain areas may be closed to all entry until moisture arrives. Check at a ranger district office
to learn if any fire restrictions are in effect, or call (575) 434‑7200, or check the Forest Service website.
