Southern California National Forests EIS

The United States Forest Service (USFS) 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 needs your participation to ensure proper protection of the native flora pursuant to this new EIS.

The summer newsletter from the Angeles National Forest indicates that the 1982 planning regulations will be used for the EIS, instead of the 2000 planning regulations.

Additional information is given on the EIS status page and in the Federal Register announcement.

Consult the EIS Time Line for information as to where we stand in the formal process.
