State Forest Annual Work Plans

Public Comment Period is Open Through February 22, 2019

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is currently seeking public comment on the proposed 2020 fiscal year work plan for Potomac Garrett, Green Ridge, Savage River, Chesapeake and Pocomoke State Forests.

Annual work plans help identify priorities within the scope of the forest's long-range management plan. They address establishment, growth, composition, health and quality management operations, along with maintenance and construction projects, and other actions.

The comment period is the final step in the three-step process. The first was an internal review by a team of natural resource professionals and the second step was a review by an appointed advisory committee.

Following the conclusion of the comment period on February 22, each forest manager will review, revise and finalize their plan.
