Forest Plan Revision

Protecting Old Growth Forests, FOC File Photo

The Forest Service is currently revising its Forest Plan for the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests. The Forest Plan will guide agency management for these two forests over the next ten to thirty years. A Forest Plan includes:

  • Wilderness administration and stewardship.
  • Measurable and enforceable standards for sensitive soils, old growth, riparian areas, water quality and fish/wildlife habitat.
  • List of Species of Conservation Concern and Focal Species.
  • Road management and densities.
  • Guidelines for logging, mining, grazing and land exchanges.
  • Energy development.

Friends of the Clearwater drafted a Citizen Alternative during scoping in 2014.
