The National Forests belong to all of us. Every 15-20 years each National Forest develops a forest plan which considers how to best manage the forest while providing for multiple uses. This video encourages the public to participate in this important process.
The Land and Resource Management Plan or "Forest Plan" is the principal document that guides the decision making of Forest Service managers. Forest Plans provide long–range management direction for the resources and uses within a national forest.
The Pacific Northwest (OR, WA) and Pacific Southwest (CA) Regions of the U.S. Forest Service are beginning a public conversation on the process for revising forest land management plans in the Northwest Forest Plan amendment area.
