The Tongass National Forest has prepared a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) that evaluates alternatives for recommending wilderness designations to Congress. This SEIS will supplement the 1997 Tongass Land Management Plan Revision Final EIS. The 109 inventoried roadless areas on the Tongass have been evaluated using updated information and mapping that best reflects current conditions. This analysis updates the 1997 Revision Analysis of the Management Situation and serves to determine the eligibility of each of the inventoried roadless areas for wilderness recommendation. The analysis also provided a foundation for development of the Final SEIS.
Many of you followed along with us on this Web site as we developed the Draft and Final SEIS. Your suggestions, interest and involvement have been helpful and are appreciated.
The paper copy of the Final SEIS includes four volumes, a map packet, and a Record of Decision. This Web site includes all of the paper information plus individual large-scale roadless area maps and other background information. A CD-ROM of the Final SEIS includes most of the information included on this Web site.
