Sequoia NF Invites Public to Review Draft Assessment

The forest plan revision process is grounded in science and public input, and seeks to deliver stronger protections for forests, water, and wildlife while supporting the economic vitality of our rural communities. It will provide opportunities for public involvement and collaboration throughout all stages of the planning process, as well as opportunities for Tribal consultation and coordination with state and local governments and other federal agencies.

The revision process involves three phases: assessment of forest resource condition and trend, development of a revised plan, and monitoring the implementation and effectiveness of plan direction. Each phase will include opportunities for public participation and collaboration.

As part of the current assessment phase, the Sequoia National Forest has developed the Draft Assessment and made it available for review and feedback on the Sequoia National Forest website, www.fs.usda.gov/goto/sequoia/ForestPlanRevision . Input can be provided on the electronic form provided on this webpage, or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or by hard copy delivered to 1839 South Newcomb St., Porterville, CA 93257. The Sequoia National Forest encourages feedback on this Draft Assessment through October 16th, 2013.

Workshops and a webinar will be held for anyone interested in learning more about the Draft Assessment for the Sequoia National Forest. Each workshop will consist of presentations and opportunities for questions regarding the various resources included in the assessment.

· Friday, September 27th, Webinar (for those unable to attend a meeting), 10:00 a.m.–noon.
· Tuesday, October 1st, Forest Supervisor's Office, 1839 So. Newcomb St., Porterville, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
· Thursday, October 3rd, Kernville Elementary School, 13350 Sierra Way, Kernville, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

These meetings will build on conversations from earlier meetings and allow participants to discuss the Draft Forest Assessment in greater detail with members of the Sequoia’s forest plan revision team. During the draft assessment phase of the Forest Plan Revision process, the public is encouraged to share key information on social, economic, and ecological conditions missing from the draft assessment and raise specific interests or expected changes or trends in the condition of forest resources over the next 10-20 years.
