Colville and Okanogan-Wenatchee Forest Plan Revision

The Colville and Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forests are working cooperatively to revise their land and resource management plans. This work will guide management of these national forests for the next decade and beyond, and are being revised to reflect resource and social changes as well as new scientific information.

The two national forests released their Forest Plan Revision proposed actions on June 30, 2011, a 90-day comment period closed on September 28, 2011. The Proposed Action is the first formal step to developing the draft revised forest plans and draft environmental impact statements (DEIS). The Forests are currently working to determine a range of alternatives to be analyzed in the two DEIS reports, planned for public review winter 2013. See project Timeline.
