Restrictions End Tomorrow on Santa Fe National Forest

Bad news-------Campfires are permitted!!!

SANTA FE, NM – July 13, 2017 – For Immediate Release. Thanks to recent precipitation and decreasing fire danger, the Santa Fe National Forest will lift campfire and smoking restrictions on Friday, July 14, at 8:00 a.m. The forest implemented Stage 1 fire restrictions on June 23 based on dry conditions and higher-than-normal temperatures.

Bears are Out!

David Stuedel (SLP Homeowner) caught this bear with his security cam at 1:13 in the afternoon yesterday.

Jan Studebaker also saw a mature bear crossing Highway 4 on the way to Los Alamos.

Gathering Monsoon Both Decreases and Increases Fire Danger

A couple of lightning caused fires that have broken out currently suggest a different pattern of fire danger emerging. The forests are still dry and ready to ignite at any carelessly flicked cigarette butt or abandoned campfire, but the recent weather has brought with it some increased moisture in the forests together with instances of dry lightning storms.

SLPPOA Mailbox damage

Albert, our mail carrier, found damage to some boxes at the SLPPOA cluster boxes. He asked that we try to pick up the mail and packages everyday to avoid losses.

If you see someone/something suspicious, call the Post Office: 575-829-3917

Thanks to Donna Smith
