I just received information from the Forest Service about the updating of their management plan for the San Bernardino National Forest.

Deep Creek is on the list for consideration as a Special Interest Area and as a Wild and Scenic River. I will be posting the guidelines for managing these type of areas in the near future so that you will have some indication of what this means for the future of Deep Creek.

The Forest Service will have more public meetings during the first quarter of the year. Public Comments on what you value about the forests and what your vision for the future of the forests is due by December 31, 2001.

This is the first part is a process which is meant to result in the update of the management plan by 2004.

Forest Service suggested subjects that you could comment on would include: wildlife habitat, species conservation, multiple use, water, exotic species, fire, coordination with neighboring jurisdictions, land acquisition, access, roads, mining, range, special uses, support to urban infrastructure, dispersed recreation, campgrounds and developed recreation, recreation fees, visitor facilities, motorized recreation, off-highway vehicle recreation, non-motorized recreation, trails, roadless/unroaded areas, wild and scenic rivers, wilderness, research natural areas, scenery, general development, visitor information and education, law enforcement, solitude and spiritual values.

Additional information is on their website at www.r5.fs.fed.us/sccs
