Humboldt - Toiyabe NF Wilderness Plans
Development of Wilderness Management Plans for Santa Rosa - Paradise Peak, Alta Toquima, Arc Dome and Table Mountain Wilderness areas and amendments to Humboldt National Forest LRMP and Toiyabe National Forest LRMP.
Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Plan Monitoring Transition
The new plan monitoring rule requires that monitoring plans include monitoring questions and associated indicators that inform the management of the plan resources in the area and whether management is being effective in maintaining and achieving progress toward desired conditions or objectives for the plan area. Monitoring questions and associated indicators are based on one or more desired condition, objective, or other plan component. Not every plan component needs to have a corresponding monitoring question. The responsible official should consider the series of questions in the draft LMP directive FSH 1909.12 Chapter 30, section 32.11 to identify which components require monitoring questions in order to effectively inform the Land and Resource Management Plan. To meet the minimum requirements of the 2012 Planning Rule, monitoring plans must address eight specific items identified in (36 CFR 219.12(a)(5).
