Forest Defender Training Series: How to Submit a Public Comment

June 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Forest Service is currently in the process of updating the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) for the first time in 30 years and they want to hear from you! In this training, we will walk you through the process of forming substantive comments and becoming involved in public lands decision-making.

Finalized in 1994, the plan covers 17 national forests totaling 24-million acres across western Washington, Oregon, and northern California. It has successfully improved the region’s streams and waterways, protected salmon and other wildlife habitat, and has protected vast quantities of old-growth forest. As the Forest Service considers changes to this landmark forest plan.

We will provide you with sample language and suggestions to ensure your comment is as effective as possible. This is an opportunity to learn how to influence the actions of the Forest Service and to have your voice heard! The NWFP is the largest, science-based forest and ecosystem management plan in the country.

it’s important that they hear from YOU. To learn more about the NWFP read KS Wild’s blog
