Where we all take part in forest planning
Please join the tenth in a series of Dialogs to discuss a range of critical issues that affect the Sierra Nevada and the Cascades and people who live, work, and recreate there. The Dialogs focus on the future of the Sierra Nevada and Cascades regions, specifically the national forests. The goal is to provide an opportunity for mutual learning, aligned actions, and understanding different perspectives.
On May 30, the Dialog will concentrate on the draft report for the Bioregional Assessment. The “assessment” is part of the initial work underway as the Inyo, Sierra, and Sequoia National Forests revise their forest plans. The Bioregional Assessment Report focuses on existing conditions and trends for the entire Sierra Cascades. The draft Report is succinct, integrating information from the 15 topical papers on Our Living Assessment, an online Wiki web site.
Each forest will be able to draw on the Bioregional Assessment Report as a foundation for revising the forest plans. Each forest will also conduct its forest-level assessment report in addition to the Bioregional. The deadline for providing information to be considered in the draft report is June 15, 2013.
