The Spring Forest is an ecological reserve located near the city off Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco. In 1980, 30,500 hectacres of the Forest were declared to be a zone of forest protection and wildlife refuge. The land protected is owned in tenure by private individuals and public interests as well as a tiny portion by the state government. Currently workers at the Spring Forest are charged with numerous tasks. They preserve the forest and the existing wildlife diversity within the forest. The reserve is also attempting to restore parts of the forest damaged by past human interaction. Finally the reserve offers safe tourism, a chance for tourists to see the forest while ensuring no further damage is done. This also serves as an opportunity to educate the public on the dangers of deforestation and other environmentally dangerous activities.
