The purpose of this website is to broaden your ability to communicate and link your comments to specific areas of the Forest--in short, to engage in "collaborative learning" with other members of the public and the staff of the National Forest. Your comments, along with those of others, are valued and will be reviewed by the staff on a regular basis to help inform them of forest conditions, uses, and trends. In addition, it may help you to understand how others feel about the National Forest in general as well as those specific areas.
In this website you will be able to identify and draw one or more areas of the National Forest (as a point, a line, or a polygon) and leave a related comment for all public and Forest Service users to see and reply to. Pop-up user guides are provided throughout the website to assist you in utilizing the website to its fullest capabilities.
