Our Tonto National Forest Plan is being Revised
Our communities are surrounded by the forest.
The forest is our home.
How can the public be involved? The Tonto National Forest is committed to involving the public in a transparent, meaningful dialogue to help shape a Forest Plan that will result in the sustainable management of resources, goods, and services through the year 2022. During the initial assessment phase, the forest will work with federal and state agencies, tribes, local governments, communities, private landowners, and other partners to develop a mutual understanding of the context for forest plan revision, and of current and desired conditions of the Forest. We aim to provide multiple opportunities for individuals or interest groups to contribute comments, suggestions, and ideas to help the Tonto develop an effective, implementable plan, including:
~ Participating in public meetings or workshops. These sessions will be announced through press releases and posted on the Tonto National Forest web site
~ Hosting Tonto National Forest staff at your organization’s meeting to make a presentation or answer questions. Contact
