Join us for a 1-day tour of the Track Fire, an interesting fire on many levels! It burned New Mexico and Colorado state and private land, which required interstate logistics. Some burned areas received cooperative post-fire watershed rehabilitation treatments by the City of Raton, the States of New Mexico and Colorado, NRCS, as well as private stockholders.
