Five-Year Plan for the Wayne National Forest to respond to the USDA Forest Service Climate Change Scorecard

The Wayne National Forest has developed a proposed strategy for implementing the Forest Service’s National Climate Change Scorecard.  Our strategy uses the scorecard as a framework to organize relevant parts of our program of work and to link our Forest Management Plan to appropriate national frameworks.  For example, this approach would allow us to be especially responsive in the area of broad scale assessments, which are an expected part of our forest monitoring program under the pending national planning rule, and to do so in an especially efficient way. The 5-Year Plan was adopted in 2011, and this update reflects our progress to date (July 2014). Contact Jarel Bartig for more information.
