TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Forest officials are still seeking public input on the draft Land Management Plan and draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Coronado National Forest. 

These new plans will replace those drafted in 1986 and will serve as a guide for Forest officials in managing the more than 1.7 million acres of Coronado National Forest System land for the next 10 to 15 years.

To read these drafts go online to: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/coronado/landmanagement/planning/?cid=fswdev7_018673 .
