Santa Fe National Forest Announces Dates for "Assessment Meetings"

Last Updated: October 14, 2015

It has been well over a year since their last Forest Plan Revision announcement but the Santa Fe National Forest (SFNF) has been continuing the long, multi-year process of revising its Forest Plan. The Forest Plan describes the strategic direction for management of forest resources for the next fifteen years on the Santa Fe National Forest.

The first phase of the Forest Plan Revision process, the assessment phase, has been completed. The Santa Fe National Forest will release its Draft Assessment document on October 20th. As part of its release of the draft Assessment, the Forest Service has also announced the dates for two types of public meetings:

1) A "Symposium" discussing the Draft Assessment, and 2) A series of ten public "Need for Change" meetings
