On June 26, the U.S. Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest and Pacific Southwest Research Stations will be hosting a science forum to share key findings of the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) science synthesis. The synthesis will inform the revision of land management plans for 17 national forests in western Washington, western Oregon, and northern California within the NWFP area. The Plan amended land management plans in 1994 to protect threatened and endangered species associated with late successional and old-growth forest habitats while still contributing to social and economic sustainability.
The synthesis is posted to https://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/research/science-synthesis/index.shtml.
Northwest Forest Plan Science Synthesis – Science Forum
The forum will include a series of short presentations on the report’s key findings, followed by a question-and-answer session. This is not a public listening session about forest plan revisions; rather, it is an opportunity to learn about recent findings from the science synthesis.
