USFS LogoIn an effort to keep the public engaged throughout the forest plan revision process for the Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests, the U.S. Forest Service is sharing our process for evaluating and identifying lands that may be suitable for recommendation and inclusion in the National Wilderness Preservation System. No new wilderness areas are being designated at this time. Only Congress can make this determination.

The California legislative session ends September 11.  As unfinished business after their summer break, they face two signature climate change bills introduced this year – SB 32 and SB 350.

SB 32, which would continue the policies put in place by AB 32 and set new greenhouse gas emissions targets for 2030 and 2050. SB 32 calls on California to reduce its GHG emissions by 80% from 1990 levels by the year 2050, while also establishing interim goals to keep reductions on track and provide market certainty for California businesses that invest in the new clean energy economy.

SB 350 will make it harder and more expensive to drive your own car by reducing the gasoline available to drivers by 50%.

USFS LogoVALLEJO, California, July 29, 2015 - The U.S. Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Region is sharing our draft proposed species of conservation concern (SCC) lists as part of the land and resource management plan revision process for the Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests. We are asking for public input that provides additional scientific information that may affect the draft proposed SCC lists.
The process for plan revision includes indicating species of conservation concern for each plan area. Developing a draft proposed SCC list for each national forest is one step in that process.
