Draft Revised Forest Plan and DEIS

Welcome to the newest addition to our planning website! Click here to go back to our main forest planning page.

On August 13, 2021, we published the Draft Forest Plan and Draft Environmental Impact. This began a 90-day comment period where you can voice your support and concerns with the plan and help inform the final product. Comments are due by November 12, 2021.

The GMUG National Forests with the National Forest Foundation will be hosting a series of virtual webinars and open houses to provide an orientation to the draft documents and to host community conversations.

Upcoming dates, links and past recordings of the events are located here.

*Geographic Area maps provide a zoomed-in view of smaller, discrete areas on the forest: the Uncompahgre Plateau, the Grand Mesa, etc.
