In this week’s edition of Earth Matters, Donna Stevens – Executive Director of UGWA / Upper Gila Watershed Alliance – interviews New Mexico Wilderness Alliance Gila Grassroots Organizer and Earth Matters co-host Nathan Newcomer on the Gila National Forest planning process.

The Forest Plan is a document that guides all management decisions from grazing and mining to recreation and wildlife.  The current forest plan is over 30 years old so there are many issues to address – and baseline assumptions to revisit.

Forest planning is a multi-year process and includes many opportunities for public comment and participation.  What does this mean for your national forest?  Listen to this interview to learn how you can get involved.

Additional information on Forest planning is posted on the
Gila National Forest website.

Earth Matters airs Tuesday & Thursday at 10am and 8pm
