NEW MEXICO - Cibola NF Releases Forest Plan Revision Resource Assessment - Public Meeting Scheduled

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

As part of the forest plan revision process, the Cibola National Forest has released the draft Resource Assessment for Mt. Taylor, Magdalena, Mountainair and Sandia Ranger Districts. This report assesses the ecological, social and economic conditions and trends of the resources, goods and services provided by the Forest, as well as risks to sustainability.

The Forest Service is asking for the public to take the time to review these important documents and provide them with feedback over the next 60 days. Pay particular attention to data or conclusions that you believe are incorrect; or omissions such as science or local knowledge that is not addressed in the draft report. The information gathered at the public meetings, collaborative sessions and from comments will help the Cibola identify the areas in the 1985 Forest Plan that need to be changed.

The Cibola National Forest has scheduled a series of public meetings and collaborative sessions in May and June where staff will discuss the draft assessment report, provide updates and identify the needs for change in management direction for the Forest. The May meeting schedule has been finalized; additional dates for June are being planned and will be publicized when confirmed.
