Scoping begins on revised forest plans for Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra
From the US Forest Service
The U.S. Forest Service recently announced a 30-day public scoping period to start the National Environmental Policy Act process for revising forest plans on the Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests. The scoping period begins August 29, 2014 with the publishing of the Notice of Intent (NOI) in the Federal Register.
The Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra are three of eight national forests selected as “early adopters,” meaning they will be the first forests to revise their land management plans under the 2012 Forest Service Planning Rule. The planning rule provides the framework for Forest Service land management plans on national forests across the nation.
These three forest plan revisions will be completed through the development of one environmental impact statement (EIS). The final EIS will result in three separate Records of Decision and three separate forest plans. Forest Supervisors are the responsible officials for making decisions on their specific forest plans.

Bronco snobs we may be, but in truth most of us started off-roading with a Jeep, TLC or Suzuki and many of us happily own a variety of 4WD vehicles. On our runs, everybody with any 4WD is welcome! But you do have to tolerate our bragging about how tough and capable the Early Bronco is.
