    Description

    The Coronado National Forest proposed amending its 1986 Land and Resource Management Plan to conform to the 2001 Federal Wildland Fire Management Policy. This Policy emphasizes fire’s essential role in maintaining natural ecosystems and allows a broader range of management options for wildland fires. Under the current Forest Plan, fires must be suppressed in areas outside of congressionally designated Wildernesses, Wilderness Study Areas, and Research Natural Areas. The proposed amendment would allow fire managers’ discretionary use of a spectrum of fire management alternatives, from suppression to managing natural ignitions to achieve resource benefits throughout the Forest.
