From the Forest Service:

Hello again friends and neighbors,

At long last!

After years of all our work and input, the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests will publish the draft revised forest plan and draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) on Friday August 13th

2021. This will initiate a formal 90-day comment period that will conclude on November 11th, 2021. All materials for the draft revised forest plan and DEIS will be published at the Forest Plan webpage:

http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/DraftForestPlan

Stay tuned for more announcements on an upcoming series of virtual webinar and open house events. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the plan, ask questions and engage with Forest Service staff.

See you on the trail!

We will give an overview of the planning process and the plan alternatives on Tuesday August 17th and delve deeper into key issues identified by the public on Thursday August 19th. Your questions and feedback are welcome!

 

Additionally, dates have been selected for virtual open houses in September. Stay tuned to the forest webpage and social media for updates and Zoom links.
