Forest Plan Revision

The Salmon-Challis began an effort to revise our existing management plans in January 2017. A lot has changed since the Salmon and the Challis forest plans were published in 1988 and 1987, respectively. Not the least of these changes was the consolidation of the forests in 1998.

We want and need your help as we work through the revision process. Our Public Involvement Opportunities page highlights ways you can help us with the revision. The Revision Library is where you can access background publications and links related to our revision effort. Our Assessment and Plan Development pages highlight the information specific to these phases of plan revision.

In accordance with the 2012 Planning Rule, there are a few processes that run concurrently to our Forest Plan Revision effort. You can find out more about these processes on the Wilderness Inventory & Evaluation, Wild & Scenic Rivers Inventory & Eligibility, and Species of Conservation Concern pages.

Our Assessment Report and Needs for Change Document were published in July. Check out How You Shaped the Assessment.

Using the information we've collected during the Assessment Phase, the revision team now begins building plan content in the Plan Development Phase. The Salmon-Challis National Forest will provide a plan initiation package in early fall then engage members of the public to gather feedback that will help inform the development of a draft plan.

In the meantime, Wild & Scenic River field reviews have begun. We have assembled a Field Review Packet to help stakeholders better understand the field review process. We invite stakeholders to experience the process themselves and learn how they can help us accomplish this task during two upcoming field tours. Check out the Wild & Scenic River Eligibility & Suitability Page for more information.
