Forest Plan for GWNF is Delayed
Release of the Final Land and Resource Management Plan for the George Washington National Forest has been pushed back to early 2014. The draft plan was released in May 2011, and the formal comment period ended in October 2011. The draft plan, draft Environmental Impact Statement, and other documents are available on the GWNF website. We will provide more information as it becomes available. Read more about forest planning for the GWNF.
Click here to review and send a message to the Secretary of Agriculture. The draft Forest Plan for the GWNF prohibits horizontal drilling, which eliminates the worst cases of hydraulic fracturing. The final Forest Plan must also contain this prohibition. Please send this message to Secretary Tom Vilsack!
