Needs for Change: What We Heard
• Save our Forests
• Science-based management on more acres
• Protect our most vulnerable species and resource
• Anticipate and adapt for climate change

• We like the way things are
• Preserve the quiet places that we have
• We want to feel safe
• Let us continue to have motorized recreation

• We need more permanent legal access points

• We need to preserve open space

• We want collaborative management
• Integrate tribal interests throughout the plan
• Many communities rely on the Forest for economic,
cultural, and spiritual needs
