  • Forest plan updates for Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests

    The U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Region is sharing additional information regarding our draft proposed species of conservation concern (SCC) lists as part of the land and resource management plan revision process for the Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests.

    In July, we provided our draft proposed SCC lists and asked for public feedback on those documents. In response to the public feedback we received then, we are now sharing the screening criteria we used to develop the draft proposed lists.

    Through the SCC process, we determine if there is a concern about a particular species’ capability to persist within the forest. If there is a concern, we design elements of the forest plan to provide the habitat conditions that will enable the species to persist on the forest as appropriate. For more information on the SCC lists, visit our webpage: http://go.usa.gov/37tD3

    If you have questions, concerns or feedback about our SCC draft proposed lists or process please contact Joan Friedlander at 858-674-2962 or submit your input via Web-form at: http://tinyurl.com/earlyadoptersfpr

    Feedback is most useful if received by February 1, 2016. We look forward to hearing from you.
