Have you ever been out on the Grand Mesa or the Uncompahgre Plateau (off Divide Road) and thought to yourself "I wonder why the National Forest Service doesn't do xxxxxx?" or "I really like this trail, I'm really glad it's here, I wish there were more like it."

Now's your chance to give the Grand Junction National Forest Service staff your feedback on what you think about the Grand Mesa and the Uncompahgre National Forests. (Gunnison National Forest too). The three areas have the combined nickname GMUG.

GMUG staff are having an open house because they are working on a PLAN that will guide them on how to MANAGE our 3 forests over then next few decades. They even have a draft version available to look through. So I'm guessing the open house will have lots of posters and INTERESTING MAPS to look at.

Some people are concerned that the plan is not being realistic about the rate of increase of visitors to these 3 forests. (I know on Sunday we were in a traffic jam of vehicles coming down Divide Road.) How will the National Forest deal with all the impacts?
