Forest seeks input on proposed McIsaac Ranch land exchange

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA — Forest officials are proposing to exchange one tract of National Forest System Lands located one to two miles west of Mendocino Pass in eastern Mendocino County on the Covelo Ranger District for four tracts of land located approximately two miles west of Mendocino Pass.

The total land to be affected is approximately 1,160 acres.

The purpose of this land exchange is to consolidate federal ownership within the Mendocino National Forest.

Consolidating land ownership can improve overall management efficiency, reduce long-term management costs and improve management of multiple wildlife, fish and recreational resources.

Concurrent with the notice of exchange proposal comment period, the forest is initiating a public scoping period on a proposed environmental assessment of the land exchange between the Forest Service and McIsaac family.

Forest Supervisor Wade McMaster encourages all interested parties, organizations, agencies, and state, local and tribal governments to share their thoughts or concerns regarding this project.
