I am pleased to announce that the Inyo National Forest is beginning the process of revising and updating its 25-year old Forest Plan. Forest Plans provide direction and zoning for the management of a wide range of resources and activities such as water, wildlife, ecosystems, and recreation for the 2 million acre Inyo National Forest (INF). The management direction and zoning contained in the INF’s 1988 Forest Plan needs to be revised and updated to reflect new information and changes in forest resource conditions.The first phase of the Forest Plan revision process is an assessment of forest resource conditions and trends. As we begin this first phase, I have scheduled three public meetings / webinars in March and April of 2013 to review the plan revision process and to solicit your input on current forest conditions, relevant trends, and drivers of forest change.
