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.



  • Bishop Kick-off Meeting / Webinar: March 11, 2013, 6:00 to 8:30 pm, Forest Supervisor’s Office, 351 Pacu Lane, Bishop CA

  • Mammoth Lakes Kick-off Meeting / Webinar: March 13, 2013, 6:00 to 8:30 pm, Community Center, 1000 Forest Trail, Mammoth Lakes, CA

  • Follow-up Technical Workshop / Webinar: April 4, 2013, Session 1: 2:00 – 4:00 pm; Session 2: 5:00 – 7:00 pm; Forest Supervisor’s Office, 351 Pacu Lane, Bishop CA


While everyone is welcome to attend, the April 4th workshop is geared towards people who want to provide detailed input on specific scientific and technical concerns in the Forest Assessment. Participants are welcome to take part in either or both sessions on April 4th.All three meetings are designed with a webinar component; please RSVP for webinars as described below.We will use your input and information to help us prepare the Inyo National Forest Assessment Report, which will be completed by December, 2013. The purpose of the assessment is to develop a better understanding of existing and predicted future forest resource conditions, identify information gaps, and to focus attention on resources that affect, or may be affected by, forest management decisions. Please contact Susan Joyce, Forest Planner, at (760) 873-2516 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
