The Forest Service has scheduled a free online seminar for June 25 to present information about the proposed revision to the forest plans for the Wallowa-Whitman, Umatilla and Malheur national forests.

“Technology provides opportunities to explore new ways of interacting with the public, while the comment period is open,” John Laurence, Wallowa-Whitman supervisor, said in a press release.

The Forest Service unveiled the draft environmental impact statement for the forest plan revisions in March. The public comment period continues through Aug. 15.

The online seminar will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Advance registration is required to participate in the webinar. Register online at https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/466254943. Registrants will receive a confirmation email that includes a personalized toll-free number and access code needed to join the webinar on June 25.

 The webinar will feature more detailed information than what was covered during a series of public meetings in March and April.
