Short Description of Activity

The Sierra Club, NMWA, and RGVBB got together a Power Point presentation for the Cibola, the Carson and the Santa Fe National Forests, all of which have comments for the final plan revision and DEIS our on Nov. 7th, 2019. There were two hour long conference calls, a 1 1/2 hour webinar, and at least 4 hours of preparation by 2 members of the RGVBB on the Cibola NF section.


The goal was to motivate members of various organizations to write substantive comments for the three forests, ad to supply them with talking points I believe that there were at least30-40 people who subsequently submitted comments. 100 people looked at the webinar email and about 1/2 of them signed up. 30 or 40 actually were on the phone call.
