Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra Forest Plan Revisions

Lupine bloom near Division Creek while storm clouds cap the Sierra Crest. Yellow-colored poppies growing on a hillside. Sparkling water flows through boulders, rocks and trees on the shoreline.

The Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests are revising their forest land management plans using the National Forest System Planning Rule, completed in 2012. The planning rule provides the framework for U.S. Forest Service land management plans across the nation. In May 2016 we released the Notice of Availablity of the draft EIS and draft forest plans for the Inyo, Sequoia, and Sierra National Forests. The Inyo National Forest expects to release a final EIS and draft record of decision in 2018. The Sequoia and Sierra National Forests expect to issue a supplemental draft EIS in 2018.
