A major milestone has been reached for the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI), a partnership between over 30 stakeholders and the U.S. Forest Service. Currently, the U.S. Forest Service is offering an early preview of a draft Record of Decision (DROD) and the project’s phase one environmental analysis—a decision that will guide and accelerate forest restoration treatments across one million acres of northern Arizona’s forests over the next decade.
An open house hosted by the 4FRI stakeholder group and the U.S. Forest Service will take place from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., Thursday, December 4, at the Flagstaff Aquaplex (1702 N. 4th St.). From watershed health, prescribed fire management, and wildlife habitat to new jobs, this plan has the potential to impact the daily lives of northern Arizona residents and visitors for the next decade. All are invited to learn more about this plan and the 4FRI effort.Continue
