On April 7, 2010, the Los Padres National Forest Supervisor’s Office announced the following contacts for obtaining film permits within the five Districts of the Forest that runs from Monterey County down to Ventura County. The CFC has been working with the Supervisor’s office for more than a year on implementing this new and more client-friendly “Special Uses” administration.
Previously, there was only one contact for filming requests for the entire Los Padres National Forest. Another re-org will take place in about a year from February 2017. >> 4.7.2010 / 5.29.2015 / 2.2.2017 lm / 8.10.2017 lb & lm / 8.2.2018 lm
