2006 Forest Plan
The Hiawatha National Forest published its Notice of Intent to revise its Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan) in September 2003. The draft Forest Plan Revision documents were published in March 2005 and the final documents were released in May 2006.
The Notice of Availability was published in the Federal Register on May 19, 2006 and a legal notice was published in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on May 22, 2006.
The 1987 Forest Plan requires that Monitoring and Evaluation be completed each year. The purpose of this is to determine how the Forest is doing in meeting the goals outlined in the Forest Plan.
The final Forest Plan Revision documents can be accessed. They have been converted to a PDF format and you will need Adobe Reader to open these documents.
