Public Lands

Forests on federal land are primarily national forests, administered by the United States Forest Service (USFS).  However, there are other forests on federal land that are administered by the United States Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Sensitive Plant Management on National Forests

The management of sensitive plants on national forests by USFS is described in the 6th edition of the Inventory.

EIS for Southern California Forests

The  Forest Service is in the process of preparing an Environmental   Impact Statement (EIS) in conjunction with the revision of the Land and  Resources Management Plans for the Angeles, Cleveland, Los Padres, and San Bernardino National   Forests.  CNPS members living in southern California are encouraged to participate in this process.

BLM EIS for Western Lands

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has initiated an environmental impact statement (EIS) for the conservation and restoration of vegetation, watershed and wildlife habitat treatments on public lands administered by its staff in the western United States, including California.  CNPS members are encouraged to participate in this process.
