Inyo, Sierra, and Sequoia National Forests Land Management Plans Revision
The Inyo, Sequoia, and Sierra National Forests are the three "early adopter" national forests in the Pacific Southwest Region of the Forest Service revising their Forest Plans using the 2012 Planning Rule. The revision process involves three stages: assessment of forest resource condition and trend, development of a revised plan, and monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of plan direction.
To officially start the formal NEPA process, a Notice of Intent to prepare an environmental impact statement has been published that briefly describes the purpose of and need for action and the proposed action to revise these forest plans. Your comments on the proposed action will help us refine the proposed action, identify preliminary issues, and develop alternatives to the proposed action.
We are also asking for your input on the wilderness inventory and evaluation process, outlined here.
