Forest Service Appeal Responses for [loading...]

An Environmental Appeal is a formal request to an agency higher authority for review of an environmental planning (NEPA) decision. The public's rights to file an appeal are defined in specific appeal regulations. Usually, all administrative processes must be exhausted before a person can bring a court action (litigation) against with a NEPA decision. This usually includes the filing of a formal appeal.

Questions and comments regarding appeals listed below should be directed to the Appeal Deciding Officer, whose information is included in the appeal response letter (included as a hyperlink).
