Plan Revision Meetings Scheduled across Nantahala-Pisgah National Forests

The U.S. Forest Service National Forests in North Carolina today announced that all six district public meetings are now scheduled as part of the Nantahala-Pisgah National Forests management plan (the Plan) revision.

Meetings will run from 6-9 p.m. The following dates and locations have been confirmed:

* Cheoah Ranger District: Feb. 21 at the Graham County Community Center in Robbinsville

* Appalachian Ranger District: Feb. 25 at Mars Hill College, Broyhill Chapel, in Mars Hill

* Tusquitee Ranger District: March 4 at the First Baptist Church in Murphy

* Grandfather Ranger District: March 12 at McDowell Technical Community College, Room 113, in Marion

* Nantahala Ranger District: March 19 at the Tartan Hall in Franklin

This is the first complete set of public meetings that the Forest Service will conduct under the first phase of Plan revision.

The meetings will provide an overview of the planning process, as well as an opportunity for sharing information about these two national forests.

The U.S. Forest Service is in the process of revising the management plan for the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests. Collaboration with the public is a vital part of the process. When completed, the plan will guide management of the two national forests for approximately 15 years.
