SFNF’s Coyote Ranger District Office Opens

SFNF News:

District Ranger Andrew Vigil, from Santa Fe National Forest, announced this week that the Coyote Ranger Station has reopened. 

The office, located on New Mexico Highway 96 in Coyote, has been closed since early December when a break in the sprinkler system caused severe flooding throughout the building. Since then, employees have been working out of neighboring offices in Cuba and Espanola. 

The flood damage was so extensive that several walls, insulation, and flooring had to be removed to allow the interior to dry out. Ranger Vigil described the drying out process as, “a lot of fans circulating like a small hurricane.” Several months of repairs followed, with the replacement of gypsum boards, new paint throughout the office, new floor trim, and a new carpet.

The Coyote Ranger Station is now open during business hours, 8 a.m. to noon and 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“Thank you for your patience; after four months, we are ready to serve you again in our restored office,” Vigil said.
