The Tonto National Forest also held an ALL-DAY Technical Partner Meeting on November 21, 2017 focused on the Preliminary Proposed Plan, the next critical step in the Forest Plan Revision process. 
Designed for partners and stakeholders, these meetings  hosted technical in-depth discussion on topics such as: rangelands and grazing, forests and fuels, restoration, recreation, wildlife, invasive species, and more. 
Partners spent time working side-by-side with resource specialists and Plan Revision Team members to discuss and provide feedback on the content of the Preliminary Proposed Plan. Notes from the Technical Partner Meeting are available here.
