The long awaited Pisgah-Nantahala Forest Plan Revision proposal is available for your review. I know this is important to many people in western North Carolina who use these forests for recreation, hunting, fishing, mediating, and foraging wild plants and mushrooms. There is a 90 day public comment period and the Forest Service has made it very easy for you to participate. There are public meetings, a short video, a brief synopsis, maps, and four alternative plans to study. If your local national forests are important to you, please take the time to visit this page and get involved: Nantahala and Pisgah Forest Plan Revision
