Coronado National Forest Plan Revision Meetings Announced

Attention Arizona Recreationists!

The Coronado National Forest, located in southeast Arizona, is revising their Land and Resource Management Plan. The Forest Service (FS) is asking the public to review the initial “working draft” of this Revised Forest Plan at a series of open houses to be held in communities surrounding the Forest during the month of March 2010. Forest staff and resource specialists will be present to discuss the draft, receive your ideas and respond to your questions.

The open house meetings will include an overview of the draft document through a short presentation describing the various plan components. They will also share the timeline for completing the revision process and tell you how to stay involved.

The presentation will be repeated once each hour to allow you to attend at the time most convenient to you. In between presentations, you are invited to interact one-on-one with the various revision team members and other Forest employees.

The working document includes draft management direction in the form of desired conditions, objectives, guidelines, standards, and suitable uses. You will also see reports that assess areas for potential Wilderness designation.
