West Calaveras Thin Scoping Package

The Stanislaus National Forest, Calaveras Ranger District is seeking initial scoping comments on the West Calaveras Thin Plantation Health Improvement project which would move plantations towards desired resource conditions in terms of ecological diversity, fuel loads, forest health, riparian and unique habitat condition and cumulative watershed effects. A scoping package and other information related to the proposed action, the scoping process and how to submit comments is available on the internet [http://www.fs.fed.us/nepa/fs-usda-pop.php/?project=40832] (See attached).

Your scoping comments would be most helpful if submitted by March 15, 2013. The Forest Service will use your scoping comments to help identify issues while preparing an Environmental Assessment, expected to be available for a 30-day opportunity to comment in the summer of 2013.

Comments may be submitted to: Calaveras Ranger District; Attn: West Calaveras Thin; PO Box 500, Hathaway Pines, CA 95233. Comments may be submitted by FAX (209) 795-6849 or by hand-delivery to the Calaveras Ranger District office, 5519 Highway 4, Hathaway Pines, CA, during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm). Oral comments must be provided at the Calaveras Ranger District office, in person or via telephone at (209) 795-1381 during normal business hours. Electronic comments, in common (.doc, .pdf, .rtf, .txt, etc.) formats, may be submitted to: comments-pacificsouthwest-stanislaus-calaveras@fs.fed.us with Subject: West Calaveras Thin. For electronically mailed comments, the sender should normally receive an automated electronic acknowledgment from the agency as confirmation of receipt. If the sender does not receive an automated acknowledgment of the receipt of the comments, it is the sender’s responsibility to ensure timely receipt by other means [36 CFR 215.6(a)(4)(iii)]. Names and addresses of those who comment will be considered part of the public record  on this proposed action and will be available for public inspection.
