Jessica will talk about what’s happening in our neck of the woods, including the National Forest Plan Revision and Travel Management processes currently under way in Sierra, Sequoia and Inyo National Forest, as well as TU’s initiative to gain special designations for the San Gabriel and San Bernardino mountains.
