Borderland group tours GNF: Resource challenges along international border discussed Submitted by GILA NATIONAL FORESTI Silver City In early November. the Gila "National Forest hosted various members of the U.S.-Mexico Border Field Coordinating Committee (FCC) under the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI) on a field .trip and one- day work session to discuss chal- lenges facing federal agencies along the international border with Mrxico. Forest hosts Gabe Partido/Timber Program Man- ager and Carolyn Koury/ Hy- drologist worked with FCC Chairperson Delfinia Montafio with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in setting up the agenda and taking the group along the Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic Byway (locally known as the Inner Loop) where top- ics on conservation, collabora- tion, and preservation of cul- tures, ranching, and open space along the border were discussed. Earlier in the year. the FCC group made a decision to meet in a national forest and in a ru- ral setting such as the Gila Na- tional Forest. By leaving urban centers in California, Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico where the group normally meets, they were able to view on-the-ground management ac- tivities such as prescribed burn- ing in the Pinos Altos wildland urban interface, thinning projects, and burned acres in the Gila Wilderness from the Miller Fire of 2011. Other topics the FCC group heard about included showcase similarities the FCC group and the Forest share on challenges related to resource management near the border," according to Partido and Koury. With the active 2011 fire season, discussion-was also cen- tered around other fire manage- ment activities such as firefighting, fire for resource benefits, and severity of drought on .the land. Cultural connec- tions between the Mogollon people of the Gila Cliff Dwell- ings National Monument and Paquim6 located near Casas Grandes. Chihuahua, Mexico was another topic of interest pre- sented by Acoma Pueblo's His- toric Preservation Officer. Paquim6 is a major archaeologi- cal site in northwestern Chihua- hua where the cultures of Mesoamerica (a region and cul- tural area in the Americas ex- tending from central Mrxico to areas in Central Ainerica) merged with the pueblo culture of the Anasazi, from the four corners area of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah. "Attendees on the field trip were given the opportunity to visit a varied representation of cultural and natural resources sites. The work and challenges performed by the Forest pro- vided us another agency per- spective and realm of responsi- bilities. The entire FCC group thoroughly enjoyed the Forest trip and appreciated the warm welcome," said FCC member Eddie Guerrero from the BLM Las Cruces office. For next year's FCC meet- ing, the group will look to an- other area in the western states to enhance the understanding, management, conservation, and protection of national forests, national parks, wildlife refuges, wilderness, waterways, feder- ally endangered or threatened species, etc. $ou hves Fishing Nepor Gila River - The flow is 66 cfs and fishing is slow with the best success in the upper reaches of the river on the West, East and Middle forks.
