Forest Service administrative offices play a vital

role in the life of rural communities. They should

provide a visible, energizing presence on Main

Street, a source of local pride, and a focus of

orientation for visitors.

Is your ranger office in town

projecting the image of your forest?

the forest it serves. Forest Service offices must

also fit within their urban context.
