How to Shape Your National Forests from Your Forests Your Future.

Each National Forest and Grassland operates under management identified in a Forest Plan. Over the years these plans are updated in a process known as Forest Planning. That's where you come in! The Forest Service needs your help in deciding what changes need to made on the GMUG. The Forest Plan Revision process guided by the 2012 Planning Rule serves as an opportunity to look at what is working and what may not be working using best available science and meaningful public involvement. Our current forest plan was approved in 1983 and has been amended five times, but a lot has changed over the years. We can change management direction, prioritize certain things over other things, etc., but we need your help. Join this conversation and have a say in the management of your GMUG National Forests.
