Forest Plan Revision
Each national forest and grassland is governed by a land management plan. In accordance with the National Forest Management Act (NFMA), forest plans set desired conditions, standards, and guidelines for management, protection, and use of the Forest. We are revising the Shoshone National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan that was approved in 1986. We are using the provision of the 1982 planning rule to guide our process.
On September 24, 2010, we published a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register to revise the Shoshone National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan and to prepare an environmental impact statement. We have completed a draft forest plan after analyzing the need for change from current forest management and after considering public, American Indian tribes, and local government input on revision topics and other issues. Impacts to forest resources and the human environment from proposed management and alternatives to the proposed management have been analyzed and documented in a draft environmental impact statement. The comment period concluded on November 26, 2012. The Final Environmental Impact Statement, revised Forest Plan, and Draft Record of Decision will be published in January, 2014.
The Draft Land Management Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement are available for your review on our forest plan revision webpage.
Meeting materials, issues of The Centennial newsletter, and other supporting documents for forest plan revision can be found in our project library.
