Each National Forest and Grassland is governed by a management plan in accordance with the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). These plans set management, protection, and use goals and guidelines. Monitoring conditions on a Forest or Grassland ensures projects follow plan direction and determines effects that might require management change.
