Forest Plan Revision
Now that the Grasslands Plan Revision effort is complete, the Cibola NF, with your collaboration, is revising the 1985 Forest Plan for the "mountain districts"—the Sandia, Mountainair, Mount Taylor, and Magdalena Ranger Districts.
The Cibola was one of eight national forests selected to be the first to implement the 2012 planning rule. The proposed directives to support the new planning rule have guided the Cibola's efforts thus far.
Plan revision begins by assessing the Forest's resources, and we have been holding public meetings to hear what is important to you. More are planned for the spring/summer 2014. For more information, please click here.
A Core Team has been dedicated to the timely completion of the plan revision process. Many other Forest Service resource specialists lend their expertise to the effort as well. more
