CALIFORNIA - Sequoia NF Host Forest Plan Revision Public Meetings in July

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Sequoia National Forest will hold a series of public meetings to continue to dialogue and receive input from the public and interested stakeholders on Forest Plan Revision. The Sequoia National Forest 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.

As part of the current assessment phase, the Forest Service has developed a series of topic papers and made them available for review and feedback in the Living Assessment WIKI on Our Forest Place, www.ourforestplace.ning.com. On the Our Forest Place website, click Living Assessment at the top of the page. On the Living Assessment page, click Assessment Chapters on the left side of the page or at the bottom of the page. The next page lists the topic papers by chapters, and by the area they cover (Bio-region, Sierra NF, Sequoia NF, Inyo NF). Clicking on the Sequoia NF link will take you to the topic paper for that chapter specific to the Sequoia National Forest.

Input can be provided through the Living Assessment WIKI, or by hardcopy or e-mail, delivered to 1839 South Newcomb St., Porterville, CA  93257, or comments-pacificsouthwest-sequoia@fs.fed.us. The topic papers are available for public review and feedback through July 31, 2013

Workshops and a webinar will be held for anyone interested in learning more about the topic papers for the Sequoia National Forest. Each workshop will consist of presentations and opportunities for questions regarding the various topic papers and the Forest Plan revision process.

  • Tuesday, July 9, Forest Supervisor's Office, 1839 So. Newcomb St., Porterville, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 10, Webinar (for those unable to attend a meeting), 10:00 a.m.-noon.
  • Thursday, July 11, Kernville Elementary School, 13350 Sierra Way, Kernville, 6:00-8:00 p.m.

These meetings will build on conversations from earlier meetings and allow participants to discuss the forest assessment topics in greater detail with members of the Sequoia Forest Plan Revision team. 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.

Please contact Maria Ulloa, Forest Planner, at 559-784-1500, extension 1160, or at mtulloa@fs.fed.us, for more information about the topic papers, meetings, or to register for the webinar. More information on Forest Plan Revision is available on the Sequoia National Forest website at http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/sequoia/ForestPlanRevision.

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