Northwest Forest Plan Updates

Northwest Forest Plan Updates

This newsletter is designed to provide information and updates on efforts to modernize the national forest plans within the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) amendment area. 

What is the NWFP?

The NWFP is a landscape approach to public land management designed to protect threatened and endangered species in late successional and old-growth habitats, while also contributing to social and economic sustainability in the region. The NWFP was completed in 1994 and amended 19 National Forest and 7 Bureau of Land Management (BLM) resource management plans. These plans provide guidance for how public lands and resources will be managed for a period of time, usually 10-15 years. The NWFP initiated a new approach to public land management, encompassing 24 million acres of land across California, Oregon and Washington.

Campfire Safety Prevents Wildfires

Clovis, CA June 02, 2017 – With the Memorial Day Weekend behind us, schools will be letting out for the summer and visits to the Sierra National Forest (NF) will increase. Activities such as camping, backpacking, and picnicking in the great outdoors often include the enjoyment of a campfire.  

The Sierra NF would like to remind our visitors to be responsible in their enjoyment and use of a campfire. Not only will it serve the purpose of providing warmth in the cool evenings, or roasting marshmallows, but it is part of the camping experience to sit around the fire and enjoy the company of those with you.

SB249 - How to kill a 'world class' program

As the dust settles over the State Senate vote on SB 249, a few things are becoming clear.  First, that the bill passed with basic minimum votes (3 - NO and 3 - Abstain from the Democrats) indicates this a noted issue and some elected representatives listened to their constituents.  This is the OHMVR program praised by former Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell as 'world class'.  The same program praised by Department of Parks Director Lisa Mangat as 'world class'.

On behalf of other OHV reps engaged in fight for the renewal of the program, thank-you for your contributions, calls and letters to your elected representatives.  They made a difference.
