1990 Forest Plan and Forest Plan Amendments

The forest plan establishes the primary management direction for the entire national forest, providing a framework for the management of National Forest System lands. All projects and plans tier to the forest plan.

Blue Mountains Forest Plan Revision

Revision includes each of the land and resource management plans (forest plans or plans) for the Malheur, Umatilla, and Wallowa-Whitman Forests. These national forests are collectively called the Blue Mountains national forests. The revised forest plans will provide strategic, program-level guidance for the management of the national forests and their natural resources for the next plan period.

Access & Travel Management

  • The Access and Travel Management program on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest includes planning, analysis and implementation for use of motor-vehicles of designated roads, trails and areas.

Watershed Assessments

Assessments identify existing condition, risks, opportunities, and desired future condition. The end product does not require a NEPA decision, but is information that feeds into project analysis.

Hells Canyon Comprehensive Management Plan

The Hells Canyon National Recreation Area Comprehensive Management Plan was completed in July 2003 and is the main management document directing short term and long term actions in the recreation area.
