Description: A Landscape Analysis Plan (LAP) sets out broad guidelines for project development within boundaries of the Kings River Sustainable Forest Ecosystems Project. The plan must be a dynamic, living document, subject to change as new information arises over the course of this very long-term project (several decades). Two watersheds, each of 32,000 acres, were dedicated to the effort by the Kings River Ranger District of the Sierra National Forest. Several documents were used to prepare a draft LAP in 1995. Although the plan lays out general guidelines for managing both watersheds, all land and forest treatments implemented under the LAP still require preparation of appropriate documents under the National Environmental Policy Act, which are open to public comment and appeal. Adaptive management is an overriding concept, with the basic intent being to learn from all individual projects and to adjust management directions accordingly. The existing draft LAP is presently under revision in response to new information from numerous discussions during field tours, new science presented in a report to Congress from the Sierra Nevada Ecosystem Project, and new science and management guidelines being developed by the Sierra Nevada Conservation Framework (an effort to produce an Environmental Impact Statement to guide the management of 11 National Forests in the Sierra Nevada).
