The National Forests in Mississippi work on many projects annually "on the ground" to improve wildlife habitat, maintain recreation opportunities, demonstrate sound silvicultural practices, and generally "care for the land and serve people." Public input is included in these activities through the NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) process. Each new project is posted on this web site, and the documents relating to its various NEPA steps are added as completed.

Schedule of Proposed Actions (SOPA)

The Schedule of Proposed Actions provides a list of proposals that will begin or are undergoing environmental analysis and documentation so that people can become aware of and indicate their interest in specific proposals.

The Schedule of Proposed Actions includes proposals whose decisions are expected to be documented in a Decision Memo, Decision Notice, or Record of Decision, pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and agency direction.

The Schedule of Proposed Actions is published in January, April, July, and October. It contains the best available information at that time. Proposals that start and finish before the next schedule is produced will be listed in the next schedule as Completed.

The newest version of the National Forests in Mississippi's Schedule of Proposed Actions (SOPA) document includes national, regional and local project name, purpose, planning status, decision, expected implementation and project contact for current and planned projects. The current SOPA is also available as a PDF Version or you may visit the Archives for previous SOPA documents.
