Jason Lott, Superintendent of Bandelier National Monument, announced that piles of mechanically thinned wood along State Highway 4 near the Cerro Grande Trailhead will be made available free to the public by permit only.
The free permits will be issued starting at 8 a.m. on Wednesday at Bandelier’s front entrance station.
One hundred permits will be issued; each one includes four tags for half a cord of firewood each, as well as a map of the designated collection area.
Permit holders may collect firewood between the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekdays and between 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on weekends. Permit holders are asked to take extreme care to minimize impact to the landscape, and must adhere to all regulations regarding National Monument lands.

Permits will expire at 5 p.m. on Nov. 30. For more information about the permits and for other park information, call the Visitor Center at 672-3861 extension 517.
