Western Threat Center Highlights
Coming Soon: A One-Stop Source for Forest Plans
How many acres of high-elevation aspen woodlands cover a national forest or region? How did an adjacent national forest planning team propose to manage a Research Natural Area with similar stand types and purpose? How many areas are available for primitive camping site development on a national forest? Soon, forest planners and managers will be able to find the answers to these kinds of questions and more in FP_DECK, the Forest Plan Database and Exchange of Current Knowledge. The Western and Eastern Threat Centers are collaboratively developing FP_DECK in response to regional and state needs for a searchable online archive of land and resource management plans (forest plans). To submit a forest plan for inclusion in FP-DECK, please contact technical information specialist Lisa Balduman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
