Introduction to the RMP

The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is developing a Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the Myles Standish State Forest to guide management and set priorities for the forest's future. Helping DCR create the most comprehensive RMP possible will require input from all stakeholders.

Friends of MSSF Workshops Planned To Encourage Greater "Stakeholder" Participation
Friends of MSSF is hosting five focus groups to help DCR bring in as much information as can be found among people and groups who have local knowledge or data, or even a "vision" to contribute to the Resource Management Plan (RMP). Please try to attend the workshops in your area/s of interest. DCR staff with expertise in the 5 areas listed below will be on hand to engage with stakeholders in discussions and information sharing. Your input at these gatherings will make a difference! The workshops will be held in the MSSF Conference Building (across the street from the MSSF headquarters).
