IDAHO -  Nez Perce-Clearwater NF Announce Two Forest Plan Collaboration Meetings

Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers,

The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests will be holding two more meetings this year to collaborate with the public on revising the Forest Plan. This is a continuation of meetings held over the last year to hear from the public on how they would like to see the National Forest managed.

The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests were selected to be an "early adopter" of the Forest Service's 2012 Planning Rule, which emphasizes collaboration to develop the plan.

The meetings will be:

November 16, 2013, at the Orofino Forest Service Office. Topics include Air Quality, Fire and Fuel Management, Recreation Opportunity Spectrum integration and updates, update on Nez Perce Tribal Components, all resource integration, and the Distinct Roles and Contributions of the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests.

December 14, 2013, at the Grangeville Forest Service Office. Topics include Wildlife Resources fine filter and What's Next in the NEPA process.

A Draft Forest Plan is expected to be available in early March for interested parties to provide formal input through the NEPA process.  Public meetings will be held at this time to share key items from the plan, answer questions and for the public to learn how to provide comments. 

For more information on these collaborative meetings or how you can participate outside of the meetings, please contact Carol Hennessey, Forest Plan Revision Collaboration Coordinator, at 208-935-4270 or email at cahennessey@fs.fed.us.
