San Luis Valley Field Office

The San Luis Valley Field Office is composed of the Rio Grande National Forest and the San Luis Valley Bureau of Land Management. Public lands in the San Luis Valley present myriad ecosystems; from 7600-ft alpine desert to over 14,300-ft in the majestic Sangre de Cristo Wilderness on the eastern side.

The vision for public land administration in the San Luis Valley is to provide the most efficient, effective management of public and national forest system lands in the area. Our objective is to provide an integrated organization that ensures one-stop service to customers through the proficient use of personnel and funding resources to more effectively and proficiently manage land and natural resources. The geography, ecosystems, land uses, and land ownership patterns in the Valley are perfect for seamless management of public and national forest system lands across the landscape.
