Monongahela National Forest Monitoring Program Transition

Monongahela National Forest Monitoring Program Transition

The Monongahela National Forest Plan was revised in 2006 and updated in 2011.  It was developed under the authority of the 1982 Planning Rule.  In 2012, the US Forest Service adopted a new planning rule that will direct future forest plan revisions.  The 2012 Planning Rule (26 CFR 219) requires us to modify our forest monitoring program by May 9, 2016 to meet the Planning Rule’s monitoring requirements.  Forest Service staff have reviewed our monitoring program to meet the new requirements, and have a proposed draft. 

If you are interested in knowing more or participating in the transition of our Forest monitoring program, please contact Karen Stevens, Forest Planner at 304-636-1800 x233, or
