The next public meeting in the forest plan revision process for Pisgah and Nantahala national forests is planned for 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 10 in Asheville. Wildlife habitat and managing for ecosystem integrity and diversity will be the main topics of discussion, and a comment station for Wild and Scenic Rivers will also be available.
The meeting is just the next installment in a series of public forums leading up to development of a final management plan in August 2016. The new management plan will guide the ecological, recreational and economic management of the forest for the next two decades.
The meeting will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Resort Drive in Asheville. Complete information on the planning process is available at www.fs.usda.gov/detail/nfsnc/home/?cid=stelprdb5397660.
