Forest Plan Revision Update

Progress continues to be made \’behind the scenes\’ on development of the draft revised forest plans, and draft environmental impact statements (DEISs) and alternatives, which are targeted for release next winter (2013-2014). A 90-day public review and comment period is planned.

The project website has been updated. Look for the revised project timeline. Also a list of key issues which are based on public comments to the proposed action (June 2011) have been added to the Comment Summary report . New technical papers related to climate change adaptations, habitat connectivity and vegetation modeling have also been added to the Reading Room: http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/okawen/plan-revision

Additional changes to the website are planned, so be sure to check back periodically for new information.

As we prepare for our DEIS outreach efforts\’” please keep us posted of any contact information changes you might have via e-mail: r6_ewzplanrevision@fs.fed.us , phone: 509-664-9247, or send letter to: Forest Plan Revision Team, Okanogan Valley Office, 1240 Second Ave. South, Okanogan, WA 98840.

We appreciate your continued interest and support as we work to bring you revised forest plans that aspire to provide sustainable and resilient forest resources into the future while balancing the many needs for which your forests are valued.
