Pendleton, Oregon—
The Forest Service has

ings to discuss the Blue
Mountains Forest Plan Re-
Topics will vary by
location. The Umatilla Na-
tional Forest will host a
meeting regarding livestock
grazing in Heppner City
Hall Wednesday, Nov. 4,
from 6-9 p.m. Doors open
at 5:30. An additional meet-
ing on the topic will be held

Nov. 12 from 6-9 p.m.

In 2014, the Forest Ser-
vice released a draft Envi-
ronmental Impact State-
ment (EIS) related to the
Blue Mountains Forest Plan
Revision and received over
a thousand comment letters.
Based in part on that feed-
back, the three Blue Moun-
tains National Forests have
worked with stakeholders
to identify topics for further
discussion—including the
pace and scale of restora-
tion, livestock grazing, ac-
cess, and wilderness.
A Forest Plan describes
the social, economic, and
ecological goals of a Na-
tional Forest and provides
a framework for future
management decisions. The
National Forest Manage-
ment Act of 1976 requires
each National Forest to
prepare a Forest Plan and
revise it every 15 years to
address changing needs
and conditions. The cur-
rent Forest Plans for the
Wallowa-Whitman, Uma-
tilla, and Malheur National
Forests are from 1990, and
the Blue Mountains region
has changed significantly
since 1990.
Meeting summaries
from previous Forest Plan
Revision meetings are
available at http://www.
and the notes from new
meetings will be posted
there as well. For more

Officer for the Blue Moun-
tains Forest Plan Revision,
