What's New: Thank you for your feedback, stay tuned for opportunities to participate throughout the summer!  

Thank you for the thoughtful input you provided during the scoping period! The team is currently reviewing your feedback, which can be viewed in the reading room, and considering how to incorporate it to develop a draft Forest Plan, starting with the foundational elements included in the scoping material. This was the first of several conversations that we hope to have with you throughout plan development, so please stay tuned for additional opportunities to participate throughout the summer!

If you're just joining the conversation, please consider checking out the Process and Products tab above, which includes links to the revised draft assessments, the scoping material, past webinars, and many other helpful resources.

Other Updates

We're also pleased to announce that the rest of the revised Assessment Reports are here! You'll find edits are highlighted in gray to be immediately apparent, and some changes based on your comments include updated species overviews, a new Groundwater Assessment, an interactive storymap, and other improvements, which we hope you'll take the time to explore.

Thank you as well for the helpful input you provided on the draft Wilderness Inventory and the draft Evaluation Criteria. Comments submitted so far can be found in the Wilderness public reading room. The team is currently working on improving these components based on your feedback, and we hope to publish revised editions later this spring.

Thank you for your continued participation!

How to Shape Your National Forests from Your Forests Your Future.

Each National Forest and Grassland operates under management identified in a Forest Plan. Over the years these plans are updated in a process known as Forest Planning. That's where you come in! The Forest Service needs your help in deciding what changes need to made on the GMUG. The Forest Plan Revision process guided by the 2012 Planning Rule serves as an opportunity to look at what is working and what may not be working using best available science and meaningful public involvement. Our current forest plan was approved in 1983 and has been amended five times, but a lot has changed over the years. We can change management direction, prioritize certain things over other things, etc., but we need your help. Join this conversation and have a say in the management of your GMUG National Forests.
