The Wayne National Forest will host three open house sessions, one for each of its three units, in February and March.
Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with Wayne National Forest Supervisor Carrie Gilbert and learn about the programs and projects dedicated to achieving the mission of the U.S. Forest Service, “to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the Nation’s forests and grasslands to meet the needs of present and future generations.”
The meetings will be free and open to the public.
Supervisor Gilbert will deliver a State of the Forest presentation at 6 p.m. during each open house session. Members of the public will have an opportunity to learn about last year’s accomplishments and this year’s priorities, including the forest plan revision process, active forest management, collaboration efforts, and enhanced recreation and tourism.
Following the presentation, tables will be set up to provide information and answer questions about Wayne National Forest programs, including general information, recreation, natural resources (wildlife, botany, forest management), operations (lands, engineering, minerals), fire, forest plan revision, and volunteer opportunities.
