CALIFORNIA - Sequoia NF Announces Next Rounds of Forest Plan Revision Public Meetings

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Sequoia National Forest will hold a series of public meetings to discuss and receive input on the Draft Assessment for Forest Plan Revision. The Draft Assessment is designed to rapidly evaluate existing information on current ecological, economic and social conditions, trends, and sustainability.

The Sequoia National Forest has developed the Draft Assessment and made it available for review and feedback. The Draft Assessment is available for download on the Sequoia National Forest website at

Input can be provided by email to or by snail mail to 1839 South Newcomb St., Porterville, CA 93257. The Sequoia National Forest encourages feedback on this Draft Assessment through October 16, 2013. A feedback form is available for download at

Two public workshops and a webinar will be held the last week of September and the first week in October of 2013. These meetings will cover the contents of the draft forest assessment out for public review. Each workshop will consist of presentations and opportunities for questions regarding the various resources included in the assessment.

  • Friday, September 27, Webinar (for those unable to attend a meeting), 10:00 a.m.-noon.
  • Tuesday, October 1, Forest Supervisor's Office, 1839 So. Newcomb St., Porterville, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, October 3, Kernville Elementary School, 13350 Sierra Way, Kernville, 6:30-8:30p.m.

These meetings will build on conversations from earlier meetings and allow participants to discuss the Draft Assessment in greater detail with members of the Sequoia's forest plan revision team. During the draft assessment phase of the Forest Plan Revision process, you are encouraged to share key information on social, economic, and ecological conditions missing from the draft assessment and raise specific interests or expected changes or trends in the condition of forest resources over the next 10-20 years.

Please contact Maria Ulloa, Forest Planner, at 559-784-1500, extension 1160, or at, for more information about the draft assessment, meetings, or to register for the webinar; they will need your email address if you wish to attend the webinar. More information on Forest Plan Revision is available on the Sequoia National Forest website at

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