Annotated outlines for each of the topic papers that will form the basis of the Inyo National Forest's Assessment Report have been posted to the Living Assessment wiki and the forest's plan revision website! The first phase of the forest plan revision process, the Assessment Report will synthesize existing information related to social, economic, and ecological conditions and trends for the Inyo National Forest such as terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, recreation opportunities and access, and multiple uses. The final Assessment Report will be completed by December, 2013.
Each outline describes the topics and resources to be considered in each topic paper, and includes some preliminary information to be considered in the assessment of conditions and trends for that resource.
