We are a member of the Greater Huachuca Mountains Fire Working Group, public and private partners managing fire activities on 500,000 acres from the San Pedro River west to the Patagonia Mountains. The group aims to work together to let natural fires burn when feasible, suppress unwanted wildfires, conduct prescribed burns, and use non-fire means to reduce fuels around developed areas. Projects will cross political boundaries to be managed along natural features and roadways.

At Coronado National Memorial, endangered Lesser Long-nosed bats use natural limestone caves and cave-like mines as their homes for part of the year. Bat-gates, a special type of fencing installed by biologists, prevent humans and predators from disturbing their habitat. Bats can fly right through!
