Make Our National Forests Your Valentine – Murphy
February 14, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
MountainTrue, the I 💗Pisgah Coalition and other forest lovers will deliver Valentine’s cards, flowers and other expressions of love and affection to the Tusquitee Ranger District Office of the US Forest Service on Friday, February 14 to welcome the scheduled Valentine’s Day release of the draft resource management plan. We invite you to bring your own Valentine’s card and meet us at the Murphy Office to share the love!
Each Valentine card is a message of love for our forests from a member of the public asking the forest service to adopt a management plan that protects the unique qualities of Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests so that people who care about recreation, ecological restoration, natural areas, clean water, wildlife, and local economies are all satisfied with the plan. The draft resource management plan for Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests has been in the works since 2013 and, once finalized, will set the priorities and rules under which these public lands will be managed for the next 10 to 20 years. Forest advocates want to ensure a plan that protects the health and vitality of our forests and the communities that depend on them.
