Exploring Our Backyard: A Conversation with Dolores District Ranger on the San Juan National Forest

The San Juan National Forest, our local forest, was established in 1905 by Teddy Roosevelt. As part of a new series about local Public Lands, KSJD's Cara Gildar talked with Nick Mustoe, Dolores District Ranger, about how the San Juan's establishment changed the way the land was used, and how the forest is managed today. Nick shares thoughts on the uniqueness of our country's Public Lands and the importance of public input.

Cara came to the Four Corners to work for the Forest Service, stayed for the community radio station. She’s a lifelong public radio and independent media fan who’s watched KSJD grow from its early days.
