Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest Plan Revision

North Belts



The Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest (HLC NF) has begun revising their Forest Plan. This section provides information on the Forest planning process and how you can learn more and become involved. It will be updated and revised as new information becomes available.

Here you will find information and links to planning documents and reports, dates for meetings, press releases, maps, briefing papers and ways to comment or be involved in the process. 

The forest plan revision team has drafted the proposed action and it is now available for public review. This initiates the scoping process.A species of conservation concern (SCC) list was developed at the Regional Office. This process occurred at the same time as the development of the Proposed Action. For more information about species of conservation concern, please go to the RO SCC page. Comments on the species of conservation concern list can be made. Visit the How to Comment page for information.
