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.
