Carson National Forest to host planning open house


Carson National Forest managers and planners are hosting an "open house" for locals to ask questions about the lengthy, once-in-a-generation process of rewriting the forest's management plan.

The meeting is set to take place Wednesday (Dec. 13) from noon to 2 p.m. at the Carson National Forest Supervisor's Office, 208 Cruz Alta Road, Taos.

"This will be an informal opportunity for the public to learn about the forest planning process, talk with Forest Plan Revision team members and review the preliminary version of the draft forest plan. Forest personnel will be on hand to answer questions about where the forest is in the planning process, issues that will be addressed by the plan and how our communities can be involved in the process," according to a Nov. 22 press release.

In early December the forest service will release a complete preliminary draft of the proposed plan, including alternatives and management areas, the Forest Service said.
