TAOS ― The Bureau of Land Management will continue thinning to reduce accumulated vegetation posing fire hazards in the San Pedro area through the end of December.
In addition to the presence of work crews, the public will be gathering wood in the area until Dec. 31. To ensure the safety of the work crews and the public, the area’s temporary closure to target shooting is extended until this time. The San Pedro Fuels Reduction Project is located on BLM lands on the south side of NM Highway 344, approximately one mile east of the intersection of NM Highway 14 and NM Highway 344.
The BLM asks for your continued patience as this work takes place to make the area safer for all public users. Thinning operations commenced the beginning of November 2018.
