Forest Service land planning committee seeks new members

See also

Nominees are wanted for the National Advisory Committee for Implementation of the National Forest System Land Management Planning Rule. The committee does exactly what it name implies: it advises the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on implementing land policy in national forests.

USDA announced on Thursday, March 13 that it seeks new members. People can apply by April 28. Current turns expire in June. No registered lobbyists may serve.

The 21-member committee last met in Sacramento earlier this month. See story linked to below for details.

The committee is changing its thrust. It recommended policy directives last fall. Now it is turning its attention to improving the planning rule, working with the US Forest Service and other public and private agencies. It will look for other partners and advise ways to get them involved.

The committee usually meets three to six times a year – no schedule is set. Meetings are open to the public.
