IDAHO - Forest Service Announces Forest Plan Meetings for 2014

Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers,

The Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests will be holding additional meetings in 2014 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 Forests managed.

The meetings will be:

  • February 8, 2014 at the Orofino Forest Service Office. Topics include Air Quality, Fire, and Fuel Management, Distinctive Roles of the Forest, and What's Next in the NEPA Process.
  • March 8, 2014 at the Grangeville Forest Service Office. Topics include Air Quality, Fire, and Fuel Management follow-up,  Social and Economic Assessment Presentation, updates on Timber Suitability, and Recreation Opportunity Spectrum and Recommended Wilderness.

  • May 10, 2014 at the Grangeville Forest Service Office. Topics include Integration Reports of all resources, a review of Tribal Resources input and Wildlife Resources follow-up. This is the final planned collaboration session prior to initiating scoping for the  NEPA process.

A Draft Forest Plan is expected to be available in June 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.
