The Outdoor Access Working Group (OAWG) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) will be co-hosting two public engagement sessions on implementation of new agency guidance on operation of the outfitter-guide permitting system. This new guidance is meant to simplify the process for obtaining Forest Service permits and provide new opportunities for facilitated access to Forest Service lands. During the session, representatives of OAWG 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.
