Where we all take part in forest planning
The U.S. Forest Service will host a series of public workshops for forest plan revisions on the Sierra, Sequoia and Inyo National Forests. These workshops follow those the Forest Service hosted in January. At those workshops, the public provided feedback on the Forest Service’s preliminary Need to Change, Draft Roles and Contributions, and example Desired Conditions. The public is welcome at any of the three upcoming workshops:
Each workshop will be held from 5 – 8 p.m. with presentations by Forest Service staff. The public will have time to visit topic-specific stations and to talk with Forest Service staff. Additionally, the public is invited to bring an 8 ½ x 11 inch copy of a photo depicting Forest Service lands they have strong feelings about. This photo may be recent or historic. Photos will be shared at the “Desired Conditions” station and the public should be able to answer the following questions regarding their photos:
