Forest Service budget cut threatens campground closures

Eastern Arizona Courier - Safford,AZ,USA
The Mount Graham campgrounds and picnic areas are in danger, but this time they are not being threatened by fire but by the possibility of being closed to the public.

The local Forest Service Ranger District is looking for partnerships and new ideas to increase funding for the campgrounds and picnic areas on the Pinaleno Mountains, also known as Mount Graham.

According to Toni Strauss, Safford’s district ranger, the funding received and what is needed to properly run and support recreational areas on the mountain are not in balance.

If additional money cannot be raised, campgrounds and picnic areas will not be able to be properly maintained and will have to be closed.
