The Santa Fe National Forest opened a new ranger station in Jemez Springs earlier this month.

The Jemez Ranger Station opened Nov. 4 at 051 Woodsy Lane, which is surrounded by red rock canyons off of NM Highway 4 in Jemez Springs.

The Forest Service said they will have an open house at a later date. In the meantime, the office is selling fuelwood and Christmas tree permits over the phone at 575-829-3535.

“I want to thank everyone for their engagement and flexibility during this multi-year-long project. It was not without challenges, one of which was mitigated with the help of the Valles Caldera National Preserve sharing office space with district employees,” Jemez District Ranger Brian Riley said. “And I also want to thank the community and local partners for their great support.”

Roger Sweet, the mayor of the village of Jemez Springs, said the town is hoping to become part of the International Dark Sky Community, which is a designation for places that have ordinances and policies in place to preserve night sky. He said the new ranger station adheres to the necessary requirements.
