JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The U. S. Forest Service is seeking public input on a plan for national forests in Mississippi.
The plan was released Friday and will guide management on 1.2 million acres of USFS lands for the next 15 years.
The NFMS consists of six forests: Bienville, Delta, Holly Springs, Homochitto, Tombigbee, and De Soto (which also includes the Chickasawhay Ranger District).
The plan, created through efforts of National Forest managers, partner agencies, conservation organizations, and interested members of the public,
works to conserve high priority forest ecosystems and landscapes in Mississippi.
The draft documents are available online at www.fs.usda.gov/mississippi.
