Folks:

The Huron Manistee National Forest Friends meeting is scheduled for this
WEDNESDAY, March 24th in Cadillac.  It is at the Bill Oliver's conference
center starting at 9 a.m. This was a change from their original date of the
26th.  For more information be sure to contact the Huron Manistee NF
Supervisor's office at 1 800-821-6263.

The Friends of the Forest is an open meeting where the Forest Service
provides updates on issues and members of the public can ask questions,etc.
One item on the agenda this week is a status report on the long awaited
Old-Growth amendment for the Forest.  In 1986 as part of a comprehensive
settlement agreement on the appeals to the Forest Plan the Forest Service
committed to identifying and protecting at least 173,000 acres of old growth
on the Huron Manistee, but the process has never been completed.
