INVITATION to a Workshop on U.S. Forest Service Permitting

Come learn about recent U.S. Forest Service efforts to simplify the process for obtaining Forest Service (USFS) outfitter-guide permits! 

The USFS and the Coalition for Outdoor Access (COA), a diverse group of organizations dedicated to improving access to federal lands, will be co-hosting a public engagement workshop on the agency’s June 2016 guidance on the outfitter-guide permitting system. This guidance promises to provide new opportunities for facilitated access to Forest Service lands. 
The workshop will be held on Tuesday, on October, 31, 2017 from 8am-12pm at the Hotel Roanoke in Roanoke, VA. RSVP HERE. This workshop is part of the pre-conference sessions being held in conjunction with the annual conference for the Association of Outdoor Recreation and Education. It is free and open to anyone who is interested. 
During the workshop, representatives of COA and USFS will provide attendees with a briefing on the new guidance and engage attendees in a dialog on how the various aspects might relate to their program or activity. Workshop leaders will also share some of the success and challenges that have occurred over the past eighteen months of implementation. 
If you have an interest in providing guided recreation opportunities on the National Forests, this workshop will provide valuable insight on how to navigate the permitting process.
