Remember Clarence, the guardian angel who helps George Bailey in the 1946 Christmas classic, It’s a Wonderful Life? He had to work awfully hard to get his wings, but if he was in Silver City this year, he’d find out that it’s easy to become a Guardian Angel for a homeless dog and it’s even tax deductible!

US Forest ServiceSilver City, NM, November 20, 2017—For Immediate Release. The Gila National Forest is currently revising its land and resource management plan – also known as the Forest Plan. As one part of the larger Plan Revision effort, each national forest undertaking Forest Plan Revision is required to complete a process of identifying and evaluating lands that may be suitable for inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System, and determine whether to recommend any of the evaluated lands to Congress for wilderness designation. Congress reserves the authority to designate wilderness through legislation.

The Gila National Forest has developed a draft inventory map as the first step of a four-step process. The map is now available for public review and comment. The inventory step is an initial narrowing down of areas that may have wilderness characteristics. It is a mapping exercise where obvious locations on the Forest landscape that do not have wilderness characteristics are removed. The Gila National Forest developed the final inventory process paper used to produce the draft inventory map after listening to stakeholder ideas during community and technical meetings and review periods that provided opportunities to submit written comments.
