Help Protect North Carolina's Forests

Audubon is currently engaged in the forest plan revision process. This lengthy process will chart the course for management of the forests for the next few decades.


Audubon supporters can help shape the way our state's forests are being managed. By submitting comments and questions during comment periods you can influence the future of our forests. Your comments and questions can influence everything from access to trails and roads, to how much timber is harvested, to what designations special areas receive. Submit your comments to the U.S. Forest Service contact information below.

If you have more detailed questions or want to know more about our approach to the process, please contact Curtis at
