More information about the meetings and Forest Plan Revision is available at http://www.fs.usda.gov/main/inyo/landmanagement/planning

The Forest's Land and Resource Management Plan was completed in 1988. While parts of the plan remain relevant, some elements need to be updated to meet changing demands and to incorporate new information.

These meetings will build on conversations from earlier meetings and allow participants to discuss Forest Assessment topics in greater detail with Inyo National Forest employees.  During this Assessment Phase of the Forest Plan Revision process, the public can share key information they have about the forest and raise specific interests and concerns.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
