Okanogan-Wenatchee forests reschedule “webinar” on manement plan revisions

NATIONAL FORESTS -- The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forests have rescheduled the Aug.18 Forest Plan Revision webinar -- cancelled by technical difficulty -- for Thursday (Sept. 1) from noon to 1:30 p.m. The webinar for the Colville Forest plan revision has already been held.

Thursday's webinar is a toll-free online informational public meeting to provide opportunities for the public to learn about the Draft Proposed Actions for the Forest Plan Revision.

The webinar will include a 20-minute overview of the Draft Proposed Actions, plus time for clarifying questions and responses.

The purpose of the webinar is to provide you with an opportunity to learn more about Forest Service proposals for long-term management of the Colville and Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forests. The Forest Service will also explain how you can submit written comments on the proposals, how your comments will be used, and about future opportunities for public involvement.

To participate, you must pre-register here.
