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. The future of a million acres of public land is in your hands.
Right now public meetings are underway. A schedule of the four remaining meetings is listed below. At these meetings the Forest Service is asking attendees what they value about our beloved Nanthala and Pisgah National Forests.
Plan Revision Meetings Scheduled across Nantahala-Pisgah National Forests:
- Tusquitee Ranger District: March 5 at the First Baptist Church in Murphy;
- Grandfather Ranger District: March 12 at McDowell Technical Community College, Room 113, in Marion;
- Pisgah Ranger District: March 18 at the Transylvania County Library in Brevard;
- Nantahala Ranger District: March 19 at the Tartan Hall in Franklin.
The meetings will provide an overview of the planning process, as well as an opportunity for sharing information about these two national forests.
