Apache-Sitgreaves NF seeks input on forest plan; Prescott NF proposes fee increases
You have an opportunity to help develop strategic direction for the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests. The USDA Forest Service is hosting a series of open houses from Sept. 3-11 to gather input for the revised Apache-Sitgreaves forest plan. The Forest Service is seeking input regarding the social, economic and ecological attributes toward which management of the land and resources should be directed.
For more information, including the schedule of open houses and where to submit comment, visit the Apache-Sitgreaves Web site at www.fs.fed.us/r3/asnf/plan-revision/documents.shtml and click on the “document/flyer’” link under the August 2008 update.
The Prescott National Forest is proposing to increase fees at campgrounds and day use sites across the forest. The increases would affect 16 day-use sites and 15 campground/groups sites, beginning in 2009. For more information and the fee proposal, visit www.fs.fed.us/r3/prescott/projects/rec-fee-proposal/index.shtml.
