April 20,2001

The Inyo and Sierra National Forests have released the Record of Decision (ROD), Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and Wilderness Management Plan for the Ansel Adams, John Muir and Dinkey Lakes Wildernesses. This culminates a decade of wilderness planning in these areas. This planning process included over 100 meetings and nearly 4000 comments received on the draft and revised draft Environmental Impact Statements. This decision was made after careful review of public comments on the Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

We have incorporated many suggestions submitted to us during the comment period on the Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Printed copies of the Record of Decision (ROD), Wilderness Management Plan and map, will be mailed to those who request copies when we receive them from the printers, hopefully in early May.

Thank you for your interest in this effort.
