Socorro District

The Socorro District covers more than 8.9 million acres of state and private land in the southwest corner of New Mexico.  It includes the seven counties of Catron, Dona Ana, Grant, Hidalgo, Luna, Sierra, and Socorro.  The main office is located just west of Socorro on Highway 60 toward Magdalena. The Socorro District satellite office is located on North Silver Street in Silver City.

One of the priorities for the Socorro District is providing technical forest management assistance to private landowners. This includes the Stewardship Program, the Forest Health and Insect Program, and assisting the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service with forest stand and wildlife improvement projects.  Other collaborative efforts include working with county teams, fire departments, and communities on fire suppression initiatives.  District staff also lead or assist on forest management practices and natural resource planning, like the Jornada and Black Range Resource Conservation and Development Programs.  The district's forest and watershed health continues to be the focus of many ongoing projects, as does the development of community forestry and conservation, including involvement in programs like Tree City USA and Conservation Days.
