Monitoring Transition: 2012 Planning Rule

Travel Management Decision

On November 12, 2005, the Forest Service announced a new regulation governing off-highway vehicles and other motor vehicle use on national forests and grasslands. The new rule requires each national forest or ranger district to designate roads, trails, and areas open to motor vehicle use. To comply with the rule, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests and Thunder Basin National Grassland developed an Action Plan for implementation of the new Travel Management Rule. The Action Plan is flexible and will be updated as implementation progresses. The Action Plan Key Points are available for your review. MVUM Maps and MVUM Frequently Asked Questions are also available.

Monitoring Reports

Monitoring and evaluation are separate, sequential activities required by the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). Monitoring is the collection of data by observation or measurement. Evaluation is the analysis and interpretation of monitoring data. The purpose of monitoring and evaluation is to determine whether or not forest plan implementation complies with forest plan direction, and whether or not the application of Forest Plan standards and guidelines is meeting forest plan goals and objectives. The results of monitoring and evaluation can ultimately lead to change in Forest Plan management direction.
