Enviro groups to discuss forest plan alternatives
Local environmental groups are putting on two meetings this week about the Lake Tahoe Basin Forest Plan.
For the first time in more than two decades the Forest Service is redoing the management plan for nearly 80 percent of all the land in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Comments are being taken until Aug. 30.
Sierra Club officials will breakdown the four proposed alternatives in the plan and have local policy experts to answer questions.
The first gathering is Aug. 21 from 6-7pm at Lake Tahoe Community College, Aspen Room, South Lake Tahoe; the second is Aug. 23, 6-7pm, North Lake Tahoe Event Center, Kings Beach.
Could this have to do with the proposed layoffs mentioned today?

GET IT OUT OF HERE.
Something to read that offers another perspective on the forest plan:
