Page Updated: April 2020

Following years of robust public participation in the Forest Planning Process, the following Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) documents are available to review.  The 120-day comment period ended on April 20th, 2020.  Comments are being used to assist the Forest in developing a more comprehensive final plan and final environmental impact statement (FEIS) for the responsible official’s review in 2021.  Comments received will also be used in the development of a preferred alternative to be presented as part of the FEIS.

We greatly appreciate the level of care and commitment people have for the management of the land and resources on the Nez Perce - Clearwater National Forests.
