U.S.F.S. Ranger District consolidation finalized

The trial reorganization for the Tahoe National Forest was recently made permanent.

The reorganization officially combines three ranger districts on the west side of the forest into two. The former Nevada City District was divided between the two districts to the north and south, and the two remaining districts were renamed.

The newly formed Yuba River Ranger District is now composed of the former Downieville District located in Sierra and Yuba Counties and the portion of the Nevada City District that is in Nevada County. The district office will remain in Camptonville.

The new American River Ranger District is now composed of the former Foresthill District in Placer County and that portion of the Nevada City District in Placer County. The district office will remain in Foresthill.

The forest headquarters will remain in Nevada City with several Yuba River District employees working there as well. Phone numbers for district offices will remain the same. The reorganization will not affect the Sierraville or Truckee Districts on the east side of the forest.
