A varied and mighty national forest, the Dixie National Forest, comprised of four Ranger Districts, is uniquely situated in Southern Utah, a primarily rural area surrounded by National Parks and State Parks on all sides. The lands that comprise the DNF are ancestral lands of the Southern Piute People and Ancient Fremont culture. More modern Pioneer settlement bring into the region another layer of unique and cultural landscape. Landscapes across the forest are wonderfully diverse, including Plateau, mountainous, and Desert settings. Our program of work is as diverse as the lands we manage, and the public we aim to serve. This includes watershed management protecting threatened and endangered species, timber stand restoration thinning that enhances wildlife habit, including a pinpointed Boreal Toad program and Beaver rehabilitation redistribution program, all while providing benefits to local economies, agriculture relationships of local Ranchers and Farmers on our Rangelands all while sustaining a world-class recreation program, and extensive trail system for hiking, horseback, and OHV, controlling invasive weeds, managing wildfires, engineering to support it all and communications and community engagement to share our work.
