DNR Welcomes Public Input On State Forest Annual Work Plans
Comment period closed.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently sought public comment on the proposed 2014 fiscal year work plan for Potomac Garrett, Green Ridge, Savage River, Chesapeake and Pocomoke State Forests.
The State Forest annual work plans identify the work that is to be accomplished on
the forest in the next fiscal year within the scope of the forest's long-range
management plan. The plans will address establishment, growth, composition,
health and quality forest management operations, along with maintenance and
construction projects, and other required work.
This public forum was the third step in a three-step review process to establish the work plan. The first is an internal review by a team of resource professionals from the fields of wildlife, fisheries, heritage, forestry, recreation, water resources, and resource planning. The second step is a review by an appointed advisory committee. After the period of comment, the forest manager will make final adjustments to the plan.
