The Board will consider a variety of issues related to national forest management. Agendas will be announced in advance but principally concern implementing the Forest Land and Resource Management Plan. The Board will consider such topics as integrated vegetation management (wild and prescribed fire, fuels reduction, controlling insect epidemics, invasive species), travel management (off highway vehicles, and related topics), and continuing access to multiple-use management of public lands, among others.
