Revision of San Juan National Forest Plan
The San Juan National Forest Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan) was released in September 2013, along with a Final Environmental Impact Statement, Record of Decision for the Forest Plan and a Record of Decision for the Oil and Gas Leasing Analysis. The Forest Plan provides a strategic vision and guides long term management of the entire San Juan National Forest.
The San Juan Forest Plan is a living document and may be amended or otherwise changed as new information becomes available or land and resource conditions change. Forest Plan amendments and administrative changes are tools used to keep the plan up to date and relevant.

Revision of the BLM’s Tres Rios Resource Management Plan was conducted jointly with the San Juan Forest Plan. The final Tres Rios Resource Management Plan documents can be found here (http://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/sjplc/land_use_planning.html).
