Land Management Plan

The revised land management plan for the Los Padres National Forest describes the strategic direction at the broad program-level for managing the land and its resources over the next 10 to 15 years. The strategic direction was developed by an interdisciplinary planning team working with forest staff using extensive public involvement and the best science available.

Monitoring and Evaluation Report

The land management plan includes monitoring and evaluation requirements that provide a framework for ensuring Forest programs and projects are meeting land management plan direction, and desired conditions will be achieved over time.  Evaluation of monitoring results identifies the effectiveness of the land management plan and whether amendments or revisions to the plan are needed.  Monitoring is completed annually and documented in a monitoring and evaluation report.
