Draft evaluations of potential areas for wilderness recommendation in forest plan revisions

Forest Service shares draft evaluations of potential areas for wilderness recommendation in forest plan revisions 

We are sharing our draft evaluations of lands that may be suitable for recommendation and inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System.

No new wilderness areas are being designated at this time. Only the Congress can designate wilderness.

We are revising the three forest plans using the 2012 Planning Rule, which requires us to conduct this wilderness evaluation. As part of this endeavor we are sharing several documents for public review including a draft wilderness evaluation report, maps, and tables that provide overviews of designated wilderness, recommended wilderness and potential recommended wilderness.

The public is invited to provide feedback on the areas currently being considered for analysis. We are also interested in public input regarding suitable uses and management of recommended wilderness. More information regarding the management of recommended wilderness can be found in the Frequently Asked Questions document on the wilderness evaluation webpage: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/r5/landmanagement/planning/?cid=STELPRD3803608

Feedback may be submitted via web form at http://tinyurl.com/earlyadoptersfpr  and is most useful if received by February 1, 2016. If you have questions or concerns please contact Christina Boston at 707-562-8837.

We look forward to hearing from you.
