The Forest Service has proposed an administrative change for the Bull Run Watershed.
This administrative change would update the land use allocations in Bull Run to be consistent with legislation passed by Congress in 1996 and 2001 to prohibit timber harvest in the watershed. This administrative change would update the land use allocations in the Mt. Hood Land and Resource Management Plan (1990), as amended by the Northwest Forest Plan (1994).
The change in timber harvest policy has already been made by Congress. The administrative change to the Forest Plan is, however, open for public comment for 30 days, until August 10, 2015.
