Officials of the Siuslaw National Forest seek public feedback on uses, values and interests relating to the forest’s four designated wilderness areas. Feedback on the wilderness areas will provide input for an upcoming amendment to the Siuslaw’s current Land and Resource Management Plan (also known as the Forest Plan). This updated plan guidance will steer future wilderness management decisions on recreation, wildlife habitat and a range of other topics. Forest Service staff are seeking preliminary public input prior to beginning the environmental review process.

“Wilderness landscapes are ecologically important and meaningful to our surrounding communities,” Forest Supervisor Robert Sanchez said. “We want to hear from the public before formally initiating this planning effort.”
