To provide interested parties in-depth information about the assumptions and methodologies used in the BLM's Western Oregon Plan Revision Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and discuss the expected effects to selected resources of each planning alternative.

Process of Sessions:

For each of the six selected topics, key planning team members will offer a 20 minute presentation followed by up to 40 minutes of discussion with participants.

These sessions are designed for people who have a basic understanding of the plan revision process.
