IFA Webinar: Writing Public Comments in Response to State Logging Plans (DRMGs)

Have you ever wanted to respond to a DRMG but were unsure how? Do you know what a DRMG is? In an IFA webinar, learn how you can take action on behalf of Indiana’s State forests from the comfort of your home.

Join IFA’s Conservation Director, Rae Schnapp, Ph.D., at 7 pm, Thursday, May 21, for an informative Zoom webinar on how to respond to the state’s logging plans, known as Draft Resource Management Guides (DRMGs). You’ll get tips on how to write effective personalized objections to the state’s plans.

Why Join this Webinar?

IFA has observed an uptick in DRMGs in recent months. Comments on the state’s most recently announced logging plans are due by May 26 for seven tracts in Ferdinand, Pike, and Jackson-Washington State Forests.

IFA needs more Hoosiers who understand the commenting process and are willing to submit public comments to the Indiana Division of Forestry to build a record of dissent. This process allows Hoosiers to inform Governor Holcomb that current levels of logging in Indiana’s State Forests is unpopular and that some areas of Hoosier-owned state forests should be set aside for their ecological and recreational value.
