***Call to Action: Every 15-20 years each National Forest develops a forest plan which considers how to best manage the forest while providing for multiple uses. With the growing popularity of mountain biking and our increasing numbers this is gives us an extremely valuable opportunity to advocate for our sport and influence the way in which our forests are managed, access to current trails, and potential for new trail networks.
This is where you come in. Please send the forest service your personal comments on the new land management plans currently under review for Sierra and Sequoia National Forests. The deadline is September 26, 2019. You can submit your comments online at https://cara.ecosystem-management.org/Public//CommentInput?Project=3375 or you can email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org The best thing is to write personal comments about who you are, where you ride, etc and then to support the YSGTC position (link to the YSGTC letter below under Sequoia and Sierra Forest Plan Revision) with your own comments about the forest plans. You can get as specific as you want, and there is some sample language provided below as well to get you started. Thanks and feel free contact us with any questions you might have about this process.
