The Dry River and Deerfield Ranger Districts will be consolidated into the “Dry River/Deerfield Ranger District” and the New River Valley and New Castle Ranger Districts will be consolidated into the”New River Valley/New Castle Ranger District.”

Forest office facilities in these locations will close as soon as we can be assured that public services will be provided for. The target date for the closing of these facilities to the public is June 2, 2006 but may be closed sooner if public services can be provided.

Forest Service Implements Consolidation of Staunton and Harrisonburg Offices

As part of an ongoing effort to streamline processes and achieve greater financial efficiencies, while maintaining quality public service, the George Washington & Jefferson National Forest has consolidated the Deerfield District office in Staunton with the Dry River District office in Harrisonburg. Effective June 5th, the Staunton office will close to the public. All public services currently provided at the Staunton office will continue to be available at the office located in Harrisonburg. The name of the consolidated Ranger Districts is changed to the “North River Ranger District.”

Forest maps, general forest information, firewood and rock permits are available at the Harrisonburg office or by calling (540) 432-0187. Firewood permits are also available by mail. The Harrisonburg office is in the process of establishing a 1-800 number to better serve customers. This number will soon be operational.

The Harrisonburg office is located at 401 Oakwood Drive, Harrisonburg, VA 22801. From I-81 take Exit 240 (Bridgewater/Mt. Crawford exit) onto State Route 257 West/Frieden’s Church Road.
